How to Make a Sewing Machine Cover (Latest Technique)

How to Make a Sewing Machine Cover? Having a Sewing Machine is empowering as it helps you get things done at your time and convenience and without spending money on tailors for small and easy tasks.

Sewing machines have various parts, and the dust can damage the different parts of the machine, and it sometimes becomes tough to hunt for the replacement of those parts.

The sewing machine needs to be covered when not used to ensure that all the unnecessary dust and moisture doesn’t affect the machine.

A Sewing Machine cover can be easily tailored at home with an old cloth of any fabric ranging from cotton, nylon, etc.

It would be an excellent option to prefer an old bed sheet to make a sewing machine cover out of it. Here is a small guide on how to go about making the cover at home using your sewing machine. 

1. Measure and Record the Dimensions

Before anything else, you need first to measure the machine’s length and breadth and note down the dimensions.

Measure the machine’s longest part’s base width and height to ensure it is adequately covered once the cover is made. 

2. Cut the fabric into pieces.

Crop a rectangular-shaped piece of fabric that could cover the length and breadth of the machine. Cut another two pieces of fabric to cover the sides of the machine. When you put the pieces together before sewing.

It should be cross-shaped, with the vertical line being the rectangular, more significant piece. It is to make sure you understand a pictographic image of what your process should look like at this stage. 

3.  Use Card Board

To make the top part of the cover hard, you can put cardboard of the same size into it so that it remains like a tabletop. It will keep the top part of the cover tight and in shape all the time. If need be, this can be stuck into it using a cloth tape, ensuring it does not come out every time you pull out the cover off the machine. 

4. Sew these Pieces

Sew the smaller two pieces of the fabric to make sure that it covers the machine. This sewing will be done along three lines: one at the sides of the rectangular, more significant piece, and the other two parallelly by joining the smaller piece into the bigger one. After sewing, you will have your basic cover ready. 

5. Put pockets if needed.

Cut small pieces of fabric of the pocket’s size as per your choosing and sew these wherever you want to put them on the cover. 

6. Sew the seams to Make a Sewing Machine Cover

The next step is to sew the cover’s open-ended seams and the pockets you have put together. It is an essential step as it makes sure that the fabric is not likely to be shredded into threads easily.
