Weekend Sewing

Sewing Machine Cover, originally uploaded by jenib320.

I didn't have a lot of homework this weekend so I had some time to sew! I accumulated a lot of new scraps from making my quilt so I decided to use some of them up with a new project! I was inspired by this lovely Sewing Machine Cover and decided to make one for myself! I hadn't originally planned to add a border but I didn't cut enough squares and I didn't feel like cutting any more. I use my machine pretty regularly so I'm not really too concerned about dust. However, my sewing table is directly across from the door to my apartment so it's pretty much the first thing you see when you walk in the door. I figured that was a good enough excuse to make a pretty cover for it. I am really enjoying patchwork at the moment, I can't wait to start working on another patchwork project.

I have been drinking more tea lately so I thought I'd make this little tea wallet. I used this great little tutorial. I love an excuse to make fabric covered buttons! These fabrics are also from my quilt, I was able to use scraps to make this as well!
