FREE Directions for Making a Fabric Sewing Machine Cover


Learn to sew a fabric cover for your sewing machine.


Fabric Sewing Machine covers are easy and fun to make, and every sewing machine needs one.  This pattern fits the "average" size sewing machine.


How to sew a fabric sewing machine cover.


Remember, the sewing machine cover doesn't need to be anything fancy, just so it covers your machine and protects it from dust. But hey..., make it fancy, add some of your own art on it,  and send us a photo!

These directions are for the average size machine.  If yours is larger, than add accordingly to the measurements given.

From cotton or calico fabric cut 2 rectangles 17" X 11" (or larger and cut a strip measuring 8" X 43".

Round off the upper two edges of your two rectangles as shown in photo 1 and 2. The rounded off edges are the top of your cover.

At this point you can decorate one or both of your rectangle pieces.  Be creative... You can appliqué things on, or use "wonder under", what ever suites you, or you can just make a plain cover.

Pin the pretty sides together of one of the rectangle pieces and the strip as seen in photo 3.  Pin the sides and top leaving the bottom open. Stitch around the seam using the pressure foot as your guide.

Do this to the other rectangle piece by pinning it to the other side of your strip. Sew.  You should now have a sewing machine cover :-)

Let's hem it now.

On the ugly side of your cover turn up the bottom 1/4 seam , press, turn it up again 1/4 seam, press, pin, and sew your hem. (see photo 4)

Your Awesome Sewing Machine Cover is done!!!

Send us a photo of it :-)


 It is very important to keep your sewing machine covered when not in use. It really does make a difference and you want to protect it from dust, lint, scrapes, and nicks. Why put all that money and effort into sewing if you are not going to protect your equipment.
