Sewing Machine Covers

One way to keep your sewing machine running well is to cover it. Most machines come with some sort of cover, but these are either made of flimsy plastic or some sort of hard cover.

What you really need is a soft cover that perfectly fits your machine and allows you to easily cover it after each use.

Collection of sewing machine covers

Since purchasing my new Juki TL2010Q I’ve been thinking about making a sewing machine cover. Actually, I’ve been wanting to make a trio of matching covers for all three of my machines that sit out.

With that in mind, I’ve collected a few sewing machine covers from around the web that I think have tons of potential.

A couple of these patterns can be purchased, but most are free on the web.

1. A Simple Quilted Cover

This is a purchased pattern available on Craftsy. I chose it because it includes quilting and a bias binding. I think this style would look nice in any sewing room.

2. Vintage Caravan Sewing Machine Cover

This Etsy pattern falls under the category of too cute for words. This could be very cute if you have more than one machine that sits out. Imagine the possibilities.

This simple tutorial doesn’t require any special skills and is easy to follow. I especially love the fabric she has chosen and the side pocket is a nice touch.

2. Cover with Decorative Stitches

Break out the decorative stitches on your machine and create a masterpiece. This pattern includes several storage pockets, two loops at the sides, and a handle on top. Removing and storing the cover would be a snap.

3. Undercover Maker Mat

This machine cover does double duty. By day it keeps your sewing utensils organized and close by. When you’re done sewing, it becomes a cover. Very clever, indeed.

Covering your serger or sewing machine is essential. This collection of tutorials will show you how to make simple sewing machine covers in very little time. Want to know everyone's favorite - it's sewing machine cover #2!

Bonus: Serger Cover

This serger cover pattern is one I created years and years ago. I still use it. It follows the drape and tie method and is very easy to whip off and back on. Not my best work, I was just beginning to experiment with quilting. Obviously, I have learned a lot since making this cover.

Choose a cover style that suits you and then make something fun and unique. Your sewing machine will thank you.

  7. I love the style of the sewing machine cover that looks like a trailer. My wife loves to sew and make crafts for our kids and it seems like she is always working on a new project. I think that we should get a bag for a machine that could allow her to bring it whenever we go on a trip to visit family.

  8. I love #4 with all the decorative stitching and buttons! The pockets are wonderful, too! This is the one I’m hoping to adapt to fit my Pfaff and maybe even my DreamCreator. Thank you for the inspiration to do something beautiful for my machines!
