Sewing Machine Cover

Well I actually got something done today, I sewed up my sewing machine cover. I used the embroidery that I digitized earlier in the week. I just used a bunch of my scrap fabric to make it.
I figured out approximately how big a piece of fabric I would need to make it and I made a little scrappy quilt, then washed it and dried it and then cut out my pieces.
I got to use a few of my new toys that I recently bought at the Sew Expo, the Curvemaster foot and my Simplicity bias binding machine. I love the Curvemaster, sewing the curve on this was a piece of cake and I used the bias maker for finishing off the bottom.
Next I need to make one for my serger and my embroidery machine.

New Digitized Embroidery

I have been playing with my Embird program and I decided to try some new techniques. This is a flower embroidery that I digitized, I used a picture I found on the internet as a basic guide. I think it turned out cute, I think I might incorporate it into a cover for my sewing machine. Every time I play with Embird I figure out something new and I also find out easier ways to do things, but I still have a lot to learn.
