I have just completed my first project from a great book i received for Christmas. It is called '101 ways to sew a metre'. This book is full of brilliant ideas and covers items such as bags, cushions, clothes and even ironing board covers! The selling point of the book is that all the ideas in the book use less than a metre of fabric so they are also fairly cheap and cost effective to make. The sewing machine cover was really quick to make, instructions easy to follow and I am pleased with the result. Making your own also ensures you get the cover to fit and i think it looks much nicer than the boring white cover the machine came with.
