I'd recently made a sewing machine cover for my Bernina 570QE, using Bernina-themed fabrics. As I'm trying to use up fabrics from my stash this year, I've also made a similar cover for my Bernina 230PE using scraps of this fab black and white "Sewing Standard" fabrics. A few back and white fabrics (also from my stash) have been added to go with it. The pattern for the sewing machine cover is Under Cover and is a ByAnnie design which was purchased from Sew Hot, along with some mesh, zippers, and double fold elastic...
...this also has a zippered pocket at the side which I trimmed with "tape measure" ribbon and is the perfect place for storing the power cable. Smart gingham zipper pulls were attached to both the side pocket and the front pocket. The other side has a mesh pocket (with elasticated edging) for storing the foot pedal...
...a zippered pocket on the front is ideal for storing the manual and a slip pocket at the back of the cover is for storing the extension table. This has also been trimmed with some "tape measure" ribbon...
...quilted flaps (trimmed with bias binding made from a black and white gingham) on top of the cover have a magnetic fastening to enable easy access to the handle for lifting the machine. I used simple sew-in magnets for these flaps, so omitted the facing that is in the original instructions. I'm really pleased with it and now both of my Bernina machines look very smart indeed!
