Protect Your Sewing Machine With 6 DIY Cover Patterns

Every sewing machine needs a custom cover for a few big reasons: It protects your beloved sewing machine from dust and protects your kids from needle-related accidents. Plus, a machine cover adds a pop of color to your sewing room while giving you something fun to sew!

Making your own sewing machine cover is easy with these six sewing patterns.

1. Sewing Machine Cover With Accessories

Get a PDF pattern to make a sewing machine dust cover, pincushion and thread catcher. All three sewing room accessories are quilted, but you can use pre-quilted fabric to make it quicker.

2. Sewing Machine Cover With Video Tutorial

Here’s a fully lined sewing machine cover, including a triple pocket and a handle on top. This FREE project comes with PDF instructions and a handy video tutorial available on YouTube. This looks so easy that even a beginner could sew it.

3. “Stitch Me” Sewing Machine Cover Appliqué

This pattern is a little bit involved because it involves the appliqué technique. On the other hand, the decoration is so fun that you may not be able to resist it! In the designer’s sew-along, you’ll also learn how to adjust the dimensions to fit your own machine.

4. Sewing Machine Cover With Vinyl Top

This pattern comes with three variations: a short version with sides, a long version with sides, and one without sides at all. Each variety includes a top vinyl window so you can see and show off your beloved sewing machine.

5. Made For Me Sewing Machine Cover

This pattern includes one set of standard measurements (19″ x 12″ x 8″) and instructions to customize your dust cover. Plus, there’s plenty of space to add any personal touch you like: paper-pieced quilt designs, embroidered designs, appliqué and more.

6. Brother Serger Cover

This last pattern is not for a regular sewing machine, but for a serger or overlocker. Designed for a Brother 1034d serger (one of the most popular models), you can easily change the measurements to fit a different model.

    I get that it takes a while to add links.
    But I can’t even see any photos to know if I’d want to make any of these!
    Guess I’ll just have to bookmark this page in my Browser — because, unless I’m really missing something obvious, the “new” Craftsy Premium will no longer allow me to keep a selection of favorites, or even recently viewed pages/classes to go back to — yet another glaring lack of meaningful functionality since the site was re-invented. (Don’t get me started on no 30-second repeat in the videos, no project gallery or user reviews of the classes, or even any way to link to the instructor’s other offerings without searching his/her name & sorting through the mess of search results…) I do apologize if I’m sounding snarky, impatient, or in any way ungrateful for the rescue of this site from the oblivion we all dreaded last summer — I really am thankful to still have access to my paid “forever” classes. But the benefiits of continued membership at premium prices without a robust, user-friendly experience on at least the level of YouTube are looking less & less attractive as time continues to approach my renewal date…

    Hi, I see this has been addressed as far back as October 2020. Will the patterns become available soon?

    I’m so confused! Where are the patterns? Could someone explain to me what I actually pay for with Craftsy?

    What a racket. No patterns. Going to dispute the charge to my credit card, even though it was only $2.50. This should be illegal.

    Unfortunately I have to echo these comments. Some additional thought needs to be put into the order you are uploading content. To upload an article because it pads out the website and makes it look good but without the support links being functional really isn’t acceptable.

    I’m struggling to understand why, when you have received all of the previous comments below, you have not uploaded the patterns. If they are no longer available to you then you need to remove the article altogether.

    Since we still do not have access to “free” patterns for which we have paid a “PREMIUM” membership for, are we going to receive any credit or extension to our membership. This is happening all over the Craftsy site not just here. I was excited about the rebirth of Craftsy and gladly spent the money. But, now, I am not so sure. Y’all spent a lot of time and effort advertising the re-launch but why do so when it is not fully functional. I am very DISAPPOINTED!!!!!

    Perhaps you might consider posting this stuff when the patterns are actually available.

    Where are the patterns i have a premium membership and no one can find the patterns you can’t say something is included when it is obviously not that is called “False Advertising” I am really starting to question if using craftsy anymore is really worth it when they want you to learn something but there is no way to try to make anything.

      Can you please add patterns for this? I paid full price for the premium membership and am becoming very frustrated with experiences like this.
