I was doing a bit of a clean up in my sewing room and came across some fabric I bought ages ago with the idea of making a dust cover for my (then) new sewing machine. I love that the fabric motifs include many of my hobbies; sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery, and embellishing are all represented. There is even some quilting in there, but it's been years since I've done any of that.
I stopped what I was doing, right then and there, and started drafting out a pattern for the cover.
The machine came with a flimsy, plastic cover that I've been using up until now. The ho-hum plastic cover did fit well so I used the measurements to draft the pattern for the one sewn from novelty fabric.
I even included the little flap that covers the carry handle, but allows access should I need to move the machine.
And now with that done I suppose I should really go back into the sewing room and continue the tidying? ---- Nahhh, that can wait. I'd rather get back to drafting a bodice sloper I was working on. The equipment from that is taking up a corner of the kitchen table and I'd like to get it cleared away.
There is also the cowl I've got about 80% knitted, the doll sweater that is half knit, and the wool rainbow warp waiting to be retied on the loom and worked on.
Do you sense a bit of Manic Crafting going on around here?
