How to sew a cover for a sewing machine

sewing machine cover

A sewing machine, no matter how often you use it, still sometimes takes a rest from you 🙂 And during this period of rest it was a good idea to cover it from the dust, which it tends to attract.

There are probably not many options for sewing machine covers. I have defined a few for myself.

Customers often ask that a shrouded machine has the ability to lift the handle and move the machine to another location. But at the same time so that there were no cracks in the case and the machine in storage is not dusty.

Surely I have not discovered a new way, and maybe even complicated some of the existing ones, but compliance with all these customer requests I have here is such a model, which I want to share with you. I will be glad to your Комментарии и мнения владельцев, advice and corrections to the construction of such a model!

Of the tools nothing unusual scissors, threads, needles. sewing machine. Of materials also all is clear fabric for the outside and the lining, polyester (any solid filler, so the bag held its shape), oblique binding for processing, velcro tape, or simply put, velcro, which will be fixed by the valve.

The initial parameters of the machine: height 31 cm, length 36 cm, width 17 cm. The handle rises up to 90 degrees (not extends), that’s why it is such a construction.

The pattern will consist of only 4 parts.

Considering the allowances we have the following pattern. The measurements are commented on, so you can easily substitute your own values.

Let’s start with the pattern Don’t hurry to make the slits right away, first cut out the whole rectangles with the dimensions 38cm x 53cm (3122). The pattern we have exactly the same size, so we cut for two patterns at once We need 2 such rectangles of base fabric, fabric for the lining and of sintepon. I have the outer part will be with a border on the bottom.


Next, we fold: inner fabricsynteponv outer fabric and quilted as prompted by design, desire and idea. The simplest version of the diamond.


As a result we have 2 parts for the future of the cover.


Now on one of these we need slits for a handle. We have the pattern with all measurements. All that’s left is to carefully mark and cut it out. A ruler, a square, a marker and everything will be straight.

Then we sew the entire cut out edge with a bias binding 7.

On this piece we need to sew the velcro. First, to the place where the second piece will be attached. And secondly, on the edge of the middle part, which in turn will be attached to the second part.

It sounds confusing, but in fact there is nothing complicated here, the picture is clearer.

So, we sew a strip of sticky tape at a distance of about 5 cm from the edge of the middle part, where we made slits. And another tape you sew on the full width, here we will fix the edge of the second part. The edge of the tape will be at a distance of 31 cm from the bottom edge. It looks like this


Now let’s put this fancy construction aside for a while and work on the second piece. It’s a little easier.

Step back from the bottom edge of 31 cm and the upper part of the perimeter cut to 0.5 cm approx. this is the future valve, which will cover all the slots in the cover. So it does not stick out at the sides, and was more convenient to assemble, we reduce it. Trim the cropped portion at the edge of the bias binding. Sew on the inside edge with the second part of the Velcro tape over the whole width. And at a distance of 31 cm from the bottom edge in the center of the second part of the short strip of velcro. It looks like this.


For Velcro on the pattern.


cover, sewing, machine

And then there’s the assembly. Fold our parts 1 and 2 like on the photo, overlapping the stripes of velcro 11.

Sew the two parts together with a machine stitch in the places marked

Now it is the turn of our part in duplicate. Fold like the main parts of the outer fabric/syntepon/inner and quilt. We have the sides of our cover.


sew the side parts into the cover without touching the part of the flap, which we have already processed. Finish off all seam edges with a bias binding.


The customer’s machine is of a slightly different design, so the slots don’t quite match the handle on my machine. But in general, the idea of carrying the machine by the handle without removing the cover came to fruition. The middle narrow part with velcro tape prevents the cover from slipping when carrying the machine. That is, open all parts at the top took out a handle, fixed the narrow part with Velcro and you can move. The handle on the customer’s typewriter is the full length of the machine, so the slots are symmetrically placed on the edges of the cover


The top wide flap closes all the slots when the machine is put into storage

Anticipating the question of why such a complication?, The customer is always right. And if you absolutely must move the machine in the bag, that’s how we’ll sew!

And for his toiler, I sewed a version much easier. I will definitely share with you the description will be much shorter! 🙂

Master class “Sewing machine cover” made on the Janome Clio 100 and Janome ArtDecor 724D

We offer you a master class Car Cover for the machine. Our master class will show you how you can make with your own hands original bag for a sewing machine.

Computer sewing machine Janome Clio 100 has a variety of sewing operations and functions, but it comes with a soft cover. Our workshop will show you how to make an original sewing machine cover with your own hands.

Lay the sewing machine pattern on the fabric and trace it.

To make the machine look original, make it out of different scraps of decorative stitching. To do this, overlap pieces of different fabrics and stitch.

Stitch at a distance of a foot, pre-shifting the needle closer to the right edge of the foot (set the width of the zigzag to 7).

The fabric must be embroidered with decorative stitches beforehand. Embellish the top with quilting stitches.

Prepare the base for the front and back of the cover, width 45cm, height 33cm.

Add patchwork. Cut strips of three colors of fabric 3 cm wide, 50 cm long. Stitch the strips on the foot by moving the needle to the right. Razutuyu. Slice them at an angle.

Stitch the cut strips together, alternating colors in staggered order.

Razute. We used a Metalnova Vapor 2600 (V 2600) iron with a steam generator and a Metalnova Duetto Base ironing board.

Embellish the strips with decorative stitches.

Place the stitched strips on the main fabric, 6 mm from the bottom. Sew with decorative stitching.

Use the Janome ArtDecor 724D overlock machine to trim the edges of the strips.

Sew one side with a 4-thread stitch. Set the thread tension to 3. Tuck in the threads according to the pattern. The threading pattern is shown under the buttonhole cover.

Finish the other side of the strip with a 3-thread narrow overlock stitch. Unscrew the left needle. If you unscrew the right needle and leave the left needle unscrewed, you will have a 3-strand wide overlock stitch.

Weave the strips together to form a square. Lay it on the base and stitch.

Position the machine on the base. Select stitch 52 to sew the appliqué, set the zigzag width to 3.

Sew the appliqué scissors with the same stitch. Use the transparent F presser foot.

Foot F is standard on the Janome Clio 100.

On our patchwork sewing machine, sew the emblems.

Lay the base on the sealer, we will do a free-motion stitch.

In order to do the stitching, you need to lower the fabric transporter, it is on the back side of the sleeve platform.

Install the Janome quilting and free-motion quilting kit QBS, art.202-002-004. Adjust the height of the foot over the fabric with the wheel on the right side of the foot. The fabric must run freely between the foot and the needle plate.

Also sew a free-motion stitch on the back of the fabric.

Decorate the front side of the cover with buttons. The fabric feeder is lowered, transparent presser foot F. Choose 12 zigzag stitch. Dip the needle into the left hole of the button, determine the distance between the left and right hole by changing the width of the zigzag, in our version the width is 3.

For comfortable and accurate button sewing it is recommended to buy button sewing foot T art. 200-136-002.

Let’s sew on the cord, as an imitation of a sewing thread. We need H drawstring foot with three thread guides Art. 200-345-006. Thread a cord through the center guide of the foot. Choose a 12 zigzag stitch, set width to 2.5, stitch length to 1.5.

We used Japanese ORGAN needles and Italian Premax scissors.

Sew a free-motion stitch on top of the fabric.

On the side, sew a to hold a pair of scissors and a ruler.

The can be decorated with decorative stitching. Trim the top edge of the with edging.

Trim the front and back of the cover and make the width of the bottom side 44 cm, the top 42 cm and the side 32 cm.

Cut the upper part of the sheath according to the following parameters. Make a 20 cm incision for the handle.

Cut out the lining fabric and pin it to the notch.

Sew the to one of the sides of the upper part of the cover.

Pin the front and back of the sheath to the lining fabric as well. Trim the bottom parts with edging. To adjust the size of the parts of the cover we used professional Japanese scissors KAI.

Sew all parts together with the wrong side inwards and face-to-face over the edge at a distance of a foot. Move the needle to the extreme right position. The machine has a reinforced needle puncture, it handles three layers of sealant with ease.

For convenience, we recommend installing an overhead conveyor. We used a Janome top feeder with a guide (low adapter) art. 200-311-003. When installing the top feeder, place the lever on the right side of the unit over the needle bar screw.

Pouch from old jeans

To make a bag out of old jeans, rip open the seam of the pants, process the fabric and wash thoroughly.

Transfer the pattern to fabric and cut it out. Sew along the seams and iron with an iron. Fold inside out and sew with a space between them. Turn out the reverse side. Sew along the bottom edge with decorative stitching and secure all layers to each other for extra rigidity.

Cut a hole in the top and trim it neatly with a slash. Iron each stitch with an iron. This will help give the product a neater appearance. Sew s for small items to the finished model.

How to Sew a Sewing Machine Cover. Pattern and Assembly

It is worth pointing out that you can sew a case-bag according to the step-by-step master class. To make it, you need to take a flannel fabric, fleece and a rigid wide braid for the handles. To cut several sets of parts, fleece and flannel, taking into account the allowance for seams, you need to put fleece on the wrong side of the flannel and quilt in a diagonal direction.

Maintain a step interval of about three to four centimeters. Prepared parts to sew together. Turn the bag inside out and sew the edges with hems, or trim with braid. Make handles with this braid.

Then make decorative ornaments. For example, you can embroider your own embroidery with floss, attach ears and a muzzle of some animal, decorate the resulting model with large beads or colorful sequins, add felt applique or mirror inserts.

The pattern of the cover

To make a sewing machine cover out of fabric, you need to take fabric for the top, synthetic/woolen/poron filling, fabric for the inside, sewing thread, pins, scissors, needles, piping, ribbons and beads.

Before you sew the product, you need to cut it out. Draw on paper, trying on your own dimensions, cut them out. Transfer basis on fabric, cut out base, lining and underlay material, taking into account allowances.

Layout of a classic cloth cover

Note! To make a pattern for a Janome sewing machine cover in the form of a cat, you need to measure the height, width of the bottom and top. Leave one centimeter for the free fit.

Create a rectangular shape with sides that are equal to the width and machine height. Divide the width in half, draw a dotted line through the constructed rectangle. Set aside a distance that is equal to the handwheel radius and the protruding part. A compass to make a circle through the point. From the lowest point to draw a fishing line to the circle. Adjust the length of the fabric.

Case for a sewing machine. Detailed master class. Part 1

Many of the seamstresses create incomparable things, but mostly for sale, or as a gift to friends and family. And maybe it is still worth thinking about yourself? Why do we so often neglect ourselves and our needs??

We offer you today’s master class on sewing machine cover you probably have? And stands, poor, without a smart suit!

In order to sew a sewing machine case we will need orange and green felt, white fabric, thread, rope, syntepon, terry yarn, black acrylic paint, ready made felt flowers, etc. Trivia.

For the top and the lining of the cover you will need two pieces of fabric about half a meter each.

On a piece of paper, draw the pattern of the cover and the details of the decoration elements. Bunny and carrot parts.

Cut out the bunny parts and mark the number of them.

On a white fabric folded in two layers spread out details of hares. We will sew two bunnies at a time.

Use a pencil to trace the outline of the piece on fabric.

On the bottom of the head parts we indicate the everted position.

Cut out blanks with a small allowance.

Along the width of the seams with scissor tips make notches in rounded places.

Through the leftover holes we turn the parts to the front side.

Using a wooden stick, tuck the seams on the ear pieces inside by 0.5 cm.

Use blind stitches to sew up the holes in the head detail.

Use hand stitches to sew the ear to the head.

Then we pin the other ear as well. Sew it on.

On the white fabric, folded in two layers, lay out the patterns of hares legs.

Use a pencil to trace the outline and indicate the location of the open areas.

Cut out the paws with a small allowance.

Through the open areas left, turn out the details on the front side.

Paws will hang on the ropes. Cut off pieces equal to 26 cm.

Tuck the open sections of the paw detail inside. Then we put the ends of the ropes in the same place.

Tighten the open section of the legs details with thread to secure the rope inside the legs.

Use pink threads to stitch the bunny’s legs through.

Pin the pattern and mark the eyes, nose and mouth on the pieces.

For the spout we prepare a pink fabric. Cut out two small triangles.

Then spread transparent glue on the back of the nose and glue to the face.

Use pink threads to embroider the transition to the mouth and the mouth itself.

Using acrylic paint to paint the eyes, eyelashes and whiskers.

Apply a light blush to the bunny’s face and the inside of his ears.

Ears on the edges decorate fluffy yarn. Pin the yarn all around the ears.

cover, sewing, machine

Use hand stitches to sew the yarn to the edges of the ears. Make bangs in the center.

Make a bow from the pink ribbon. For the girl bunny, sew a bow to the base of the ear.

From orange felt cut out a carrot for the bunnies. Use pins to pin the patterns. Use a pencil to trace the outline of the cutouts.

The cover will be ready very soon, but until then we should take a little break and gain strength. See the continuation of the master class in the next part.

Choosing the pattern

Now we can directly proceed to the selection of a suitable pattern.

Note that this pattern is made without allowances. If you want to make something similar, don’t forget to add 2 cm on each side.

For a similar model we need this pattern:

  • If you want the sewing machine to be easy to carry, make notches for the handle. A pattern like this will look like this:
  • with appliques:

These variants can be taken as a base, and how to decorate and what material to sew, here you will be prompted only by your imagination:

Case for a sewing machine with their own hands

For a variety of reasons, people sew covers themselves. Sometimes you just can not buy them, sometimes you want some special fabric, sometimes you just want to save money, and sometimes you need to get busy, to put things in order at home: to find a use for leftover fabric, give a second life to unnecessary things and make a new and useful thing. It happens that the covers fall into disrepair, and, in addition, now sell new cars economy class without covers.

Today I want to show the algorithm of sewing covers, because it is not possible to provide all variants of requests and models of covers for equipment, who needs what, but knowing the main points, you can sew any case. Detailed instructions, drawings and videos will give

a complete idea of how to sew a sewing machine cover with your own hands.

The simplest is sewing covers for the phone, sewing covers for the mattress, a bag-case for a drill, for example, or wrenches. These pouches are bags, handbags with a string or zipper, or with a hinged flap on the button, velcro.

To do this, you need to cut a piece to size with seam allowances: on the side and bottom edges of 1 cm., and in the area of the top seam for the cord 3 cm. Detail fold in half lengthwise and stitch along the side and bottom seams with a single stitch (and sometimes it happens that the side seams, and the bottom of one-piece), then overcast the seam. Fold up the top seam by 1 cm. and again at 2 cm. And stitch in the hems with a closed seam of 0.1 cm. from the edge, leaving an opening for pulling the cord. If you know how to make buttonholes, it is better to sew a cross stitch on the seam allowance from the front side, and then stitch the edge without skipping. Insert the cord. The cover is ready. You can sew the corners with a cross stitch of a given length for volume.

Slightly more difficult to sew with a welted side or bottom. The job is to join the sides of the side of the cover, then stitch in the bottom or side. The difficulty lies in the correct calculation of the circumference of the bottom and in sewing on the circumference. If the cover with the barrels, they are connected to a longitudinal piece, and the main thing here is not to allow the warping. If the shroud with a flap, it must be treated with a sub-flap. It may be cut or unfolded.

Awning for a car trailer

If you need, for example, a cover for a car trailer, rather it will be an awning, and it will be a simple trailer in the form of a box, it can be sewn in two ways.

First method A. The top of the tent is a rectangle, plus a one-piece seam, which is better to make a double. Cut the corners when cutting, then hem the sides with a hemming stitch. Then stitch the corners. To fasten the tarpaulin cover you must punch the linchpin.

The second way B. Cut a rectangle equal to the top of the trailer with seam allowances. Separately cut a strip of length equal to the perimeter of the upper part, width equal to the double size of the rim with seam allowances. Sew the skirt to the top of the tent along the perimeter and punch in the fasteners. In the corners when sewing on the edge it is necessary to make cuts.

If the material allows for thickness and softness, it is desirable to embroider the seams sewing on the rim (barrel) by 0.2 cm.

cover, sewing, machine

If you want to replace the old tent with a new one, it is better to take the dimensions from the old tent. Analyze how the old tent was sewn and repeat this technique.
