Urban Home Goods Swap

I finished the package for my partner in the Urban Home Goods Swap. I haven't been feeling 100% for the last few weeks so I had to just sit down and force myself to finish this project.

My partner mentioned that she likes Hope Valley, so I used that as the main fabric for this sewing machine cover. I have to admit, though, that I'm not a huge fan of it myself. Something about the colors just don't do it for me. I think that's why I struggled to finish it.

I used the orange and purple fabrics to make a semi-reversible cover for her machine.

The back and ties use the same fabric. I straight-line quilted the cover in random lines. I don't think I basted it as well as I could have because I had a couple problems with tucking here and there.

Overall, I'm pleased with how it came together.

When I showed it to my mom, she loved it, which gave me the idea to make one for her for her birthday.

Along with this, I sent my partner some Hope Valley charm squares in the green/yellow and gray colorways as well as some vintage thread spools. I hope she likes the package.

I *love* it! In fact, right after I leave this comment, I am off to Flickr to favourite it because I want to make myself a machine cover and this is EXACTLY what I want.

I'm sure your partner will be really happy with her package. It sounds lovely!

So funny story. My mom called me today informing me she had seen this great sewing machine cover linked up to {Sew} Modern Monday this week. She went on and on about how much she liked it. :) Pretty sure it was her way of leaving a hint that she would like one. Mom was right (again), this cover is wonderful! Thanks for linking up!
