All three of these projects are pretty quick and easy to make. You can even use pre-quilted fabric or decorating fabric (backed with a med-heavy fusible interfacing) for the cover if you prefer.

The pincushion and thread catchers are so quick to make, they literally take minutes! The thread catchers are so versatile as well. They would also make cute party favors or teacher’s gifts filled with something fun. You can even enlarge the pattern to make storage bags for all kinds of things.

I've made my patterns very easy to read and understand. I give you a complete list of everything you will need to complete the project. I've broken everything down into step by step instructions and have included lots of full color photos and illustrations.

Supplies for Sewing Machine Cover:
(8) 3 x 35 inch strips of fabric in various colors
1 yard cotton batting or fleece interfacing (44” wide), see note
1 yard (44”wide) 100% cotton muslin (or cotton fabric if you prefer a color)
1/2 yard fabric for binding and side panels
Thread to match fabrics

NOTE: If you will be using a thicker batting such a polyester craft or quilt batting, please take into consideration that the “loft” could affect the final size of your finished product. Cotton batting was used in the sample, but a fleece interfacing would give the same result. For example, I made a table runner pattern twice, once with a polyester craft/quilt batting, and the other with 100% cotton batting. The one with the polyester batting turned out shorter than the one with the cotton batting. The “loft” actually fluffed up the runner and that’s what made it shorter.

7 x 14 inch scrap of fabric for the outside
7 x 14 inch scrap of fabric for the lining
