August Project Saturday ~ Sew n' Sew

This months project was chosen by Amanda.  The project was a  Sewing Machine Cover.
At first glance the project seemed complicated.  But as I read the instructions (I know, I know, I don't usually do this) I found it to be well~not so hard :).
With the help of my little Sweetpea and using my Featherweight Mable, we tackled the cover.  I am making a cover for Bernie, my 830 Bernina.  After measuring Bernie in all different ways and adding the extra inches for seams and stuff.  I came up with this.
I used some of the vintage barkcloth that I have collected,  it matches the curtains that hang on my cupboard.
Marcia Dee made hers out of really bright cheerful sewing themed fabric for her big computerized machine.
Donna just loved these poppies and had to actually purchase some retail fabric to get this fabric!  Donna sells fabric at Quilt shows.  The poppies are pretty and it is for her big computerized machine.
And then Amandas.  Amanda is making her cover for her little white Featherweight.  She chose the greens she is so fond of.  Amanda didn't quite get hers finished, but she is on her way!
All in all, it was a fun day.  We had it the first Saturday this month instead of the usual 2nd Saturday as summer is drawing to an end and all are getting in those last minute trips.  Making summer last just a little longer.  We are done with the traveling this summer.  Our next trip wont be until November.  But school starts here in a couple of weeks, and my Sweetheart has to have surgery in a couple of weeks, so my summer is over.  The heat is still here tho~ going to range from 103-108 this week.  :)
Next months Project Saturday~ Pillow Cases....
