I am so thrilled to get to click “publish” on this little post! My third pattern is officially on the market! Cover Up is a sewing machine cover pattern with three different style options. Sewing machines come in a giant array of dimensions, and I wanted to take that into account. This was one of the most crucial points in the testing of this pattern. The directions are written in such a way that every bit of the cutting instructions is based on the measurements of YOUR machine! My testers sew on everything from a petite machine to the giant Bernina 820 and others in between, like my Janome 6500. We didn’t rest until the directions were clear and worked for any machine.
Like all of my patterns, Cover Up comes in a sturdy booklet format with full color, illustrated instructions.
The cover is fully lined and it has (what I think are) some nice finishing details to make it both wonderful to look at and well made.
This is a pattern that has so many options and I’d love to share some with you.
Style One showcases a single print in the center panel:
Style Two is an easy pieced panel. I chose Moda Cross Weaves for mine. (The specific fabrics are listed inside the pattern for what we used to make both cover samples)
Style Three involves a panel of wonky pieced strips. I used some scraps for my center panel:
Jaime, one of my testers, made the gorgeous lime version on the cover. She also wanted to play with some piping and did a variation on a Style Three. I loved her results so much that bonus instructions are included for making Cover Up with some piping! Isn’t that large scale fabric she chose just awesome?
Want to grab a copy of the pattern for yourself? You can find the pattern in digital form in my PDF pattern shop or in paper form at many of the stores listed on my Patterns page, under “Where to Buy.” If you are looking for an online source, Pink Chalk Fabrics carries my whole line. I’d love to see one when you finish it!
