This adorable sewing machine cover has been designed for the young at heart! With some time spent piecing and stitching, it can be all made up and sitting pretty in just a weekend! The bird is made out of an Ohio quilt block that is then reverse-appliqued to the cover, diagrams and colour-photos are included to teach the whole process. The pattern is adaptable to suit a larger sewing machine and instructions are included for how to do this. Have fun making this decorative item for your sewing room!

I enjoy designing pretty, useful and sometimes retro-flavoured items, and have had more than 20 projects published in Australian craft and sewing magazines. You can find me blogging and face-booking - I do hope you'll visit me for a chat so I can share my latest craftsy ''doings' with you! Have a great day! Vikki :-)
