I just finished my first project on my new Janome machine. I called it the "lunch lady apron" machine cover. I needed this design, as I'm keeping the extension table set up all the time. A traditional 4-sided cover wouldn't work. Here's a link to a bunch of great sewing machine cover tutorials created by The Tip Junkie.
For my version, I used sewing themed fabric found at Stitches, Etc. and basically made a little fleece backed quilt that would cover the machine.
Anyone know the fabric's designer? If so, please leave a note in comments. ETA: Thanks, Edie for the details. The fabric is called Sew Border, from Makower UK. I'm not surprised - I love many of that company's fabrics.
As part of my studio remodel, I also moved my thread holder to be right above my machine. So much easier. And, I added a smaller one below the original spool holder dedicated mostly to colored bobbin threads. Love having all that color right in front of me as I sew.
