Continuing from last week's blog, I have completed my van sewing machine cover. You may remember I was watching a live youtube feed from Simply Colorful FibreCast, and the presenter Lynn was making a vintage caravan block. After making the block, I thought it was perfect for a cover for my machine that I keep in our van.
After the first block I added the two ends and the other side.
Next I added the roof in two parts to allow the carrying handle of the machine. I used a thin synthetic wadding and a plain yellow fabric backing to make a flat net of 3 van.
And here we are. The finished cover. Next time I would make the stairs different and I would also outline the windows in white.
I have owned this little Elna since about 1986. I bought it from my friend Rhonda. It has been the best machine -only does straight and zigzag, but it has served me well.
Prior to the Elna I used my grandmother's old Singer machine that now belongs to my Aunty Margaret.
So, tomorrow I'm back to Sassy Cats.
