I have an idea when my projects are well received because lovely people leave comments, they get pinned and shared and I see that reflected in my blog statistics. Which is great. But the warm fuzzy feelings and the dancing around the kitchen happens for me when people show me something they've made using one of my tutorials. It's a real WOW thing for me - that someone would open a page on my blog and have it sitting there on their computer, tablet or phone, and they follow the steps and MAKE IT.
My quilted sewing machine cover has to be one of my all time favourite projects I've ever made, and it's been a pretty huge favourite for you too! Today I'm sharing some AMAZING versions that other fantastic sewers have made and shared with me. I am in a group on Facebook called The Sewing Library and the April project was to make a sewing machine cover. All these lovely ladies are in that group and chose to use my tutorial - thank you :)
This first one was made by Erin P from Mumma Mia Designs. The pinks and aquas work so well together!
This one in purple tones was made by Alison from This Novice Sewist. I have that owl print in my stash!
Kylie made hers with a gorgeous selection of greens.
Check it out - my cover now has a twin! Erin B. made this one, also using a Half Moon Modern charm pack. A few differences - she went with red chevrons on the side and a grey binding around the bottom. Of course I adore it!
As you can imagine I am pretty thrilled to see my cover made up in all different fabric combos and keeping these ladies' machines dust free! I have seen several others as well and they are all as gorgeous as these ones! If you've made anything from my tutorials I'd love to see it - feel free to email me, post it on my facebook wall or add it to my flickr group.
If you are inspired to make one now, you can check out the tutorial here. I really must get myself organised and make one now for my overlocker!
