My lovely new machine finally has a jacket. I rounded up some of my favorite fabrics, including Riley Blake's My Mind's Eye and Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelet, as well as a bold Kona Cotton, Cerise, for this project.
The sewing machine cover was a fun and original project. I knew I wanted a combination of strips and smaller pieces, to highlight different parts of the fabrics.
It's so nice to see this sitting on my desk instead of the sheet I used to cover my machine with.
Cerise is a difficult color to photograph, at least in combination with the aqua and gray shades, but this picture of some extra patchwork shows off the magenta shade very well. In estimating the amount of patchwork I would need, I was generous, and ended up with this extra piece, which I've attached to a piece of corkboard above my sewing desk.
In other sewing news, I purchased a storage unit (under $40 from Target) and worked to organize my stash. This isn't all the fabric I own, but it's progress. You can click through to flickr to see a description. I've generally organized by yardage. Someday, I'd love to do what apriltwoeighty did with her stash. In the meantime, I'm happy to have my fabric visible and somewhat organized.
