Bernadette Gets a Cover

Okay, so I am a little ashamed to admit that, even though I've owned my sewing machine (Bernadette) for five years, I have only just gotten a cover for her to keep all the dust off.  Slack, I know, but I think it was partly due to my rather hopeless dream of finding a hard, protective cover for her (this model doesn't have hard covers made to fit them).

Anyway, after looking at this very easy tutorial over on the Sew Delicious site, I finally found the time to make faithful Bernie a cover for her very own.  This fabric sewing machine cover tutorial is very easy to follow, though I did make a few alterations to suit my sewing skills (I didn't quilt my cover).  I used Kate Spain's Cuzco charm pack for the outside of the cover, and a vintage pillowcase for the lining.  The bias binding was leftover from this project.  I know not all of my seams are perfectly placed, but I'm still pretty pleased with the final result.

Do you sew?  And if you do, did your machine come with a cover, or did you make one for it?  Let me know!
