Shhh.... It's a coverup!
So, I was staring at my pile of UFOs and feeling stuck in that place where you just don't know where to start. So I did what any normal person would do -- I decided to make something else entirely.
I almost never cover my sewing machine (I know, I know...). The plastic cover it came with just seems like too much. It takes up precious floor space when not in use, so I put it in the closet and then forget about it. I ran across a pattern for a sewing machine cover that used charm squares. Perfect, a small, quick project that would actually be useful.
After rooting through my stash of 5" squares (some actual charm packs, some [pre]cut by me at the end of a project), I didn't find anything I wanted to use. But at the bottom of the bin, I found a layer cake that would do. The 10" squares were in two colorways, neutral and blue. I could see using the blue in a quilt, but the neutral not so much. So I cut it into 5" squares and the cover was on its way.
Here's a closer view.
Oh, well, it's just a sewing machine cover. At least my machine is happier! I don't know what kind of machine the blogger has who made up this pattern, but it must be a lot bigger than mine. I had to take out half the squares! Part of the reason was probably because I have my machine in a table, machine bed flush with the table top. But it cover was also waaaay too long. I guess she must have a machine with an oversize harp space.
