This is a printed paper pattern that will be posted out to you. This is NOT a PDF download.
The pattern has two main options – either use the standard fit size to quickly whip up a cover for your machine or as a gift for someone else, or use the custom fit size to design a cover that fits your machine perfectly! The pattern comes with full instructions on measuring your machine and drafting the pattern pieces required for the custom fit size.
Also included in this pattern are options to include piping, add a pocket on the back of the cover to store your extension table, presser foot and/or power cord, and also create cut outs so your Made For Me Sewing Machine Cover sits nicely over your machine so you can keep it plugged in when not in use. And YES! This pattern can also be used to make covers for your overlockers/sergers as well!!
