Showing in the photo above the materials I used to stitch the designs out

  • Fabric
  • Thin pellon (wadding)
  • Cut away stabilizer 1 sheet for the panels with a small amount of stitching, for the more dense stitching 2 sheets

 

Materials you will need to make the sewing machine cover

  • Grey Fabric for the exterior of the house 3 meters, I always buy more than I need
  • Thin pellon (wadding) 3 meters
  • Blue fabric for the sky 1 meter
  • Green fabric for the garden scenes 1 meter
  • 3 meters of Cut Away stabilizer. Depending on the density of each design panel I used 1 or 2 sheets
  • 2 meters Heavy wool batting or just a heavy batting as the wool can be expensive, I only used the wool as I had it on hand but I would have used a heavy batting if I had it at hand
  • Piping for the base edge of the sewing machine cover optional
  • Lining fabric

The following photos are also in the colour chart for you to follow the step by step to do the applique work

Once you have stitched all the designs out

  • Match up the outline stitches and stitch the designs together
  • I suggest for the front, sides, back and top panels you stitch at this stage the thick batting to each panel. Just stich the batting around the edge of each large panel
