When my blogging friend, Jenny Fish told me she was turning 40, I really wanted to make her something. Its fun making something for someone who sews as much as I do! I decided on a sewing machine cover~ BTW, I don't have one for my machine yet, so this was an experiment of sorts. I opted for all Jennifer Paganelli fabrics since we share a love of all things Sis Boom. I used 8" strips of as many different fabrics as I could find and sewed white Kona cotton to each side. Then I quilted across each strip then free motion quilted the white part (I tried to put her name on it if you look closely at the top~ J's are hard to quilt!). For the back I used Nancy in aqua from the So St Croix line because I know Jenny is partial to Jennifer's blues! One end is finished with a striped ruffle and the other I experimented with using a selvedge edge & it seemed to work! Ribbon ties complete the cover~ which Jenny calls her sewing machine 'blanket'. I wanted it to 'puddle' so I made it a little longer. It looks more feminine, don't you think? Can't wait to make one for me!
