Sewing cover for a sewing machine
Sewing machine, no matter how often you use it, it still sometimes takes a rest from you And in this period of rest it was nice to cover it from the dust, which it tends to attract.
The options for sewing machine covers probably not so many. I’ve identified a few for myself.
Customers often ask for a shrouded sewing machine to be able to lift the handle and move the machine to another place. But that there were no cracks in the bag and the machine in storage is not dusty.
Surely I have not discovered a new way, and maybe even complicated some of the existing. but observing all of these customer requests I have here is such a model, which I want to share with you. I will be glad to hear your Комментарии и мнения владельцев, advice and corrections on the design of such a model!
At the end there are detailed photos of the finished model, so you can immediately determine for yourself whether to read the entire master class
Nothing unusual for tools. scissors, thread, needles. sewing machine. From materials also all is clear. the fabric for the outside and for lining, padding (any volumetric filler, so that the bag held the shape), oblique binding for processing, velcro tape, or simply put, velcro, which will be fixed to the valve.
The initial parameters of the machine: height. 31 cm, length. 36 cm, width. 17 cm. The handle rises at 90 degrees (and not extends), because of it such a design.
The pattern will consist of only 4 parts.
Taking into account the allowances, we have the following pattern. There are Комментарии и мнения владельцев on the dimensions, so it’s easy to substitute your own values.
Do not hurry to make slits, at first cut out the whole rectangles with the size 38cm x 53cm (3122). The pattern we have the exact same size, so we cut for two patterns at once We need 2 of these rectangles made of fabric for the main fabric, fabric for the lining and of sintepon. I have the outer part will be with a border on the bottom.
How to Make Your Own Custom Sewing Machine Cover
Then we fold: inner fabricsyntepon the outer fabric and quilted as prompted by the drawing, the desire and the idea. The easiest option. rhombuses.
As a result, we have 2 parts of the future cover.
Now on one of them we need slots for the handle. The pattern with all sizes we have. It only remains to accurately mark and cut everything out. A ruler, a square, a marker. and everything will be straight.
Next, we work the entire resulting edge of the cut out oblique selvedge.
On this detail we need to sew the velcro. First, on the place where the second detail will be fastened. 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 photo is clearer.
So, we sew on the tape velcro at a distance of about 5 cm from the edge of the middle part, where we made slits. And another tape to the full width. here we will fix the edge of the second part. The edge of the tape will be 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 top of the perimeter is cut to 0,5 cm approximately. this is the future flap, which will cover all the slits on the cover. To keep it from sticking out on the sides and to make it easier to assemble, we will reduce it. Trim the trimmed part along the edge with a bias binding. Sew on the inside edge of the second part of the “velcro” to the full width. And at 31 cm from the bottom edge in the center of the second part of the short Velcro. It looks like this.
With the velcro on the pattern is.
And then there is the assembly. We put together our parts 1 and 2 as shown in the photo, aligning the Velcro strips.
Sew the two parts together in the marked areas with a machine stitch.
Now it’s the turn of our part in duplicate. We fold like the main parts. outer fabric/syntepon/inner. and quilt. We get the sides of our cover.
Sew the side parts into the cover without touching the flap part, which we have already treated. Trim all the seams with a slash.
The customer’s machine is of a slightly different design, so the slots do not quite match the handle on my machine. But on the whole, the idea of carrying the typewriter by the handle without removing the cover came to fruition. The middle narrow part with velcro keeps the cover from slipping when carrying the machine. That is, open all the parts at the top. take out the handle, fasten the narrow part with Velcro. and you can carry. The handle on the customer’s typewriter is the full length of the typewriter, so the slits are symmetrically placed on the edges of the cover.
Top wide flap closes all the slots when the machine is put into storage.
Anticipating the question “Why such complications??”I’ll answer right away. the customer is always right. And if you must necessarily move the machine in the bag, then sew it that way!
And for my workaholic, I sewed a much simpler version. I’ll be sure to share with you. the description will be much shorter!
Decoration of the cover
To sew an individual product, just look at the material on self-creation. To create not only your own, but also functional, image, it is necessary to adhere to the relevant recommendations:
- Determine the center of the piece and create an interesting color accent using fabric in different colors.
- On one or both sides place s to store metal scissors with a tape measure, threads and other colorful accessories.
- You can decorate the cover of the sewing machine with lace or braid. They can give special refinement to the product, especially with contrasting finishes. Zealous masters can sew other decorative elements. For example, a good addition to the cover is a thick decorative harness cord to trim all docking edges.
- Modern machines have a handle for carrying. You can make a hole in the top of the case for this handle. It can be trimmed or edged, so that the material used does not unravel.
Note! Another interesting decorative finish to a sewing machine cover would be machine embroidery. It can be presented in the form of a patch. The seamstress will only have to sew it on with colored or ordinary flossy threads.
Machine embroidery model sewing machine
A convenient and unusual variant of decorating a handmade product will be beading or sequin finishing of the finished model.
Decoration with beads on a cape
Such protection is not a problem, and as a tool for transportation in general it is irreplaceable! To make a cover for a sewing machine Janome Juno 1715, for example, very simple.
The dimensions of this machine are: length (CA). 35 cm, height B. 26 cm and width A. 14 cm.
Next, we cut out two sets of parts. of fleece and flannel, not forgetting the seam allowances.
From the wrong side of the flannel overlay fleeces and quilt diagonally. The interval should be about three to four centimeters.
Now sew all the prepared details, turn inside out and sew the edges together with a hemmed stitch or trim the braid. Using the same braid make handles and sew them in necessary places.
The needlewoman’s aids (sewing machine covers, organizers for needlework accessories), sewn by my hands
The letter “H”. This is the first letter of the customer’s name. The idea with the embroidered letter is all mine. I had to decorate the cover somehow. So I offered the customer such a variant. At the same time I finally used the Vanessa Ouache book “La fabrique poéTique de Vanessa”.
The bag is made of cotton with flowers and striped fabric from my grandmother’s store, inside there is a lining of chequered fabric. Sealed with doublerine. From the decorations. natural lace and wood decorations.
During the cutting I managed to make a mistake in the calculation, so I had to add the striped fabric on the back of the cover. In my opinion, it turned out even more interesting
The size of the cover is 412819 cm. As in the previous case, in one of the sides made a Sealed with dublerin, so the cover holds its shape well. In all the pictures stands on its own without support.
I can show you more of this fall set. which was a gift for my mom
I recently became the owner of a new sewing machine, not because the previous one was in disrepair, but simply because I wanted a more modern machine with more features. Well, my mom agreed to take my previous machine.
Once again assembling the sewing machine after work on it and shoving under the factory soft polyethylene case of the wire with a pedal, I suddenly remembered, as not so long ago Inna (Milady Azazel) showed the case and a pouch for a pedal and wire, which she sewed for her sewing machine.
The fabrics suitable to the autumnal theme (and for some reason I wanted to make this set exactly autumnal), I had a lot, but they all stubbornly refused to match each other. After agonizing over the choice of checkered linen, and for the lining I chose a fabric with roses.
I chose the design from the book “Jahreszeiten. Herbst and Winter” by Christiane Dahlbeck (these cute animals have been bugging me since last year), and the bag is decorated with an application in the form of acorns.
The size of the bag is 383018 cm, the size of the machine cover is 383018 cm and the size of the pouch with the embroidered appliqué are. 1,823 centimeters. On the left side of the cover there is a I made it with the hope that the bag with the pedal and wires would fit in there, but it was too small, so I’ll have to find another purpose for it.
The needlewoman’s kit for needlework supplies
I have created here such a set for the current process or for storage of needlework supplies (it depends on the hostess wishes).
The organizer bag has three s on the outside: two regular s and one with small compartments (for example, for spokes/hooks or pens/pencils). Decorated with a tag and a brooch-flower on a pin, which if desired can be moved to another place or just remove. Materials: calico, sintepon. The size of the bag 192318 cm. I sewed the bag with this project, everything is quite understandable and uncomplicated.
I also decided to make a bag for little things, so as not to lose anything. And, of course, I wanted to embroider something! Embroidery design “Un air de printemps” by Tralala, embroidered on Britney Lugana 28ct color Antique white, DMC threads (colors matched to the underlying fabric). Materials: calico, lace, satin ribbon for ties, wooden beads, decorative buttons. The dimensions of the bag 10,5184 cm. Sewed by this MC, before turning out the bag stitched the corners for volume.
In pink or Dolce vita
What do you get, if you combine love for needlework, sweet things and peas? Here I have, for example, an organizer for needlework accessories.
This is not the first time I noticed that if I did not immediately manage to show my new work on the blog, then every day it becomes more and more difficult to do so. So it was with this needlework organizer. And now I look at the photos of this organizer and I even do not know, what to write about. And not so long ago I was so fond of it!! Though it turned out a little bit different from what it had been planned at first. It was supposed to be gentle and romantic, mostly blue and just a little bit of red, but the result was so red, that even made my eyes water. And exactly because of abundance of white polka dots on red background the organizer received the name “Retro”.
When I chose the motif for the embroidery, my attention was caught by the girl in the red dress with white polka dots. For exactly the same dress with a similar white collar was in my childhood. I also had a white ruffle around the edge of my dress, but it’s not that important, really? Design by Veronique Enginger, embroidery scheme from Creation Point de Croix Magazine 8 (March-April 2012.). I did not embroider the whole motif, but only half of it, and, based on the shade of blue fabric, I replaced the blue thread colors with blue.
The size of the organizer. 22 cm in diameter, 3 cm thick. Sealed with two layers of volumetric adhesive fleece, closes with zipper. Inside. Five s of different sizes, two of which close with a button. On the back of the organizer there is another with a zipper.
For the organizer I sewed a small pincushion needle case and sewed with fabric a tape measure. They are always at hand, as they are in their place thanks to the buttons located on the inside of the organizer and on the back of the needle and tape measure. Embroidery scheme for roulette decoration from the book “Agenda 2011 Latelier de la brodeuse au point de croix”.
I made this organizer to order. And despite my overdoing it with red for nothing, the customer accepted it as it is.
Knitting Needle Case
Sewing machine cover with my own hands. Detailed master class. Part 2
Here we meet again in the continuation of the sewing master class sewing machine cover. We have already mastered the base itself sewing machine cover is almost ready, left to finish decorating, assemble it, and you can take the job.
We cut out four pieces for the two carrots.
Put the pieces together, right sides in. Pin them together.
Sew the pieces with machine stitching. At the top leave a hole for turning out.
Along the width of the seams with the tips of scissors we make notches.
From the green felt we cut narrow strips for the greenery.
Fold the strips in several layers and stitch them by hand at the bottom.
Insert the greens through the hole and sew them onto the carrots. At the same time we sew up the open area.
From the main fabric, use a pencil to mark the sides of the cover. The fabric is folded in two layers.
Cut out the patterns with a small allowance.
Then cut out the front and back of the cover in one piece.
Cut out lining from lining fabric according to already sewn details.
Use pins to pin the ready-made heads of bunnies to the front part of the piece of cover. Sew the heads to the main pattern at the base of the ears.
Unscrew sewn heads and pins pin cords with paws. Sew the ropes to the cover.
Sew bows of ribbon on the bottom of the heads.
Find an interesting position for the handles and put carrots in them. Pin them to the base and sew on the handles and carrot with a few stitches.
Find the centers on the solid piece and align them with the centers on the sides of the patterns.
Look closely at the picture. The work begins from the center. Use pins to pin the top side of the side of the cover.
Then go to one side and the other side.
Be sure to make small notches on the allowances in the rounded areas of parts. Removing the pins, take out the parts with hand stitches. Sew them together.
Turn to the other side of the cover.
Repeat the same operations with the lining parts. Sew the details with machine stitching.
Fold the ready-made top and lining of the cover, as shown in the picture.
Insert the lining into the cover with the sides facing inwards.
Using pins, bind the seams of the cover and lining.
On the back side of the cover we will leave an open area along the seam for turning it inside out.
Through the opening left, turn the ready-made cover to the front side.
Sew the bottom of the cover with a manual oblique stitching. Immediately sew up the open area. At 1 cm. Starting from the edge of the cover we start with a finishing stitch.
Sewing machine cover
Nothing unusual for tools. scissors, thread, needles. sewing machine. The materials are also clear. the fabric for the outer side and lining, padding (any volumetric filler, so that the bag holds its shape), oblique binding for processing, velcro tape, or simply put, velcro, on which the flap will be fixed.
The initial parameters of the machine: height. 31 cm, length. 36 cm, width. 17 cm. The handle rises at 90 degrees (and not pulled out), that’s why it is such a design.
The pattern will consist of only 4 parts.
Two identical side pieces: 17 x 31 cm, according to the dimensions of the machine allowance (piece ); 1 piece with slots, through which the handle will go (piece ); 1 piece as a valve, which will close all the slots from above (piece ). Considering the allowances, we have the following pattern.
Let’s start with the detail Do not hurry to make cuts right away, first cut out the whole rectangles with the dimensions 38cm x 53cm (3122). We have the exact same size detail, so we cut two pieces at a time We need 2 of these rectangles made of fabric for the main fabric, fabric for the lining and of sintepon. I will have the outer part with a border on the bottom.
2.Next, we add: inner fabricsssyntepon and outer fabrics and quilt them as the pattern, the desire and the idea prompts. The easiest variant is rhombuses. As a result, we have two parts of the future cover. ( GIF 1 )
Now on one of them we need slits for a handle. Pattern with all sizes we have. All that is left is to carefully mark and cut everything out. A ruler, an angle piece, a marker. and everything will be straight. Then we will sew the whole cut out edge with a bias binding ( GIF 2 )
4.On this piece we need to sew velcro. First, to the place where the second pattern will be attached. And secondly, on the edge of the middle part, which in turn will be fixed to the second part. This might sound confusing, but it’s really not complicated. the photos are easier to follow. So, we sew a strip of velcro about 5 cm from the edge of the middle part, where you made the slits. And sew on one more piece of tape all the way around, that’s where the edge of the second pattern will be fixed. The edge of the tape will be 31 cm from the bottom edge. It looks like this.
5.Now let’s put this fancy construction aside for a while and create the second piece. It’s a little easier here.
Step back from the bottom edge of 31 cm and cut the upper part of the perimeter by 0,5 cm approximately. this is the future flap, which will cover all the slots on the cover. To keep it from sticking out from the sides and to make it easier to assemble, we’ll make it smaller. Trim the trimmed part along the edge with a slash. On the inside edge we sew on the second piece of Velcro that covers the whole width of the strip. And at 31 cm from the bottom edge in the center of the second part of the short Velcro. It looks like this. With velcro on the pattern it goes like this. ( GIF 3 )
6.And then there is the assembly. We fold our parts 1 and 2 like in the picture, overlapping the stripes of velcro. Sew the two parts together in the marked areas with a machine stitch. Now it’s the turn of our part in duplicate. Fold like the main parts. outer fabric/syntepon/inner part. and quilt. We get the sides of our cover. Sew the sides into the cover, without touching the flap part, which we have already treated. Sew the seam allowance along the edges. We end up with the following.
The pattern of the sewing machine cover with his hands
So, at the very beginning of the drawing process, as we noted above, measure all sides of the machine. Pattern of sewing machine cover with their own hands. an absolutely uncomplicated task!
We need the height, width of the bottom and the top (here we take the flywheel as a reference point).
The formula for the length of the main pattern is: (height 2) width of the top. For the free fit also add about 1 cm on both sides. Take into account every piece that protrudes!
First, we make a rectangular figure with sides equal to the width and height of the machine. Divide the width in half and draw a dotted line through the entire rectangle. On it let’s set aside a distance equal to the radius of the handwheel plus the protruding part above it. Using the compass, draw a circle through the highest point. From the bottom points draw lines to the wide part of the circle.
Adjust the length of the main fabric by measuring the contour of the side, not including the width of the bottom, and the width is the length of the machine plus 1 cm for a loose fit.
That’s it. the pattern of the cover for the sewing machine with our own hands we have constructed, it remains to transfer it to the fabric and cut out.
Really, is it worth spending time and effort to create a cover for the sewing machine, if it is already equipped with a plastic version (many modern products are already equipped with them when buying)? In defense of handmade updates we can say the following:
- A plastic sewing machine cover will be very electrifying.
- Second problem. a lot of dust, which it will attract, like a magnet (as a consequence, quickly loses its appearance).
- The plastic version is the same. But a sewn sewing machine cover with your own hands is sure to be unique.
- A thoughtful model of such a product will create additional protection for the machine from curious children’s eyes and hands.
So, the cover for the sewing machine will protect the device from contamination and create a new Accent in the interior (the latter depends on the style of embodiment). Interesting? Let’s get to work?
Our cover is sewn for a small overlock machine, but if you sew a cover for a sewing machine. You may need to make a hole for the handle. It is easiest to provide a seam in this area and leave the center section unstitched.
We also used ready-made patch s on the back side of jeans. Check whether the ready-made s for the pedal and cable of your machine, in case they are small. you can sew them separately.
For sewing the cover you need one adult pair of jeans in standard length. Before cutting, wash the jeans and cut one side of each pant leg, choosing a pant leg without decorative stitching if possible. Cut the pant canvas along the widest part, under the back s, unfold and iron.
We used patches from several pairs of jeans for the patches. Carefully peel off the patches and iron them if necessary.
So, let’s sew a sewing machine cover with s!
Measure the sewing machine or overlock by determining the maximum height and width of the appliance.
A sample pattern for the sewing machine is shown on the left and for the overlock on the right.
The centerpiece, depending on the fabric you choose, may be either solid or made up of patches. In our case, the central pattern is assembled from several pieces; the pieces with a full decorative stitching are used for the front pattern.
Both sides will be sewn with the sides mirrored. Cut the s as close to the edge as possible and trim the inside.
How to proceed
Sew the center piece by folding them over. Place the seams next to the decorative stitches with an interval of 2-3 mm.
Tap the s on the side pieces and sew as close to the “native” stitching as possible.
Sew the side pieces to the center piece.
Fold up the bottom of the whole cover and stitch to the width of the foot. Hand sew decorative patches by inserting a needle into old stitch holes.
