Sewing Machine Cover

In my last post I mentioned a sewing project i was going to attempt, well this is that project, a sewing machine cover for my mum for xmas.(Which she was pretty impressed with)
I'm so happy with how this turned out since I've never made anything with a sewing machine before, only taken up pants once in a blue moon,lol  with a sewing machine i inherited from my nan.

The Pattern for this project came from 2 different books coz i couldn't deiced which one i liked the best  so i incorporated both. The main cover came from Creating Country Threads Vol 12 No 2 and the Applique came from Handmade Vol 22 No 8. I really enjoyed the Applique & embroidery part must be the paper crafter in me!! TFL :)
