|Nope, haven't done anything about the ugly green desk. Too busy sewing!! ;0)|
I have been needing a dust cover for my sewing machine, Joy. In fact, I have even had this fabric folded in a cute little pile, for months. All of the sudden, last Friday was the day! I worked on it between housework, and playing with friends and family over the weekend. Last night I finished its cute little skirt.
The rainbow strips were leftover scraps from another project, and they were just too sweet not to stay together. When I realized how well they went with the main print, I just knew. I just love the sewing machines on this Alexander Henry print. Lately Sandi Henderson's Henna Garden prints have been finding their way into almost everything I do for myself. Love them!
Another fussy cut, but why not?
This is the back. Because I pieced the front, top, and back as one piece, those sweet sewing machines are standing on their heads! This is the only thing that I would have done differently. (Yup, more Henna Garden!)
Thought a little Michael Miller Dandy Damask was too fun not to add. The pleated ruffle was added because I made the thing too short. Glad it happened, because Heather Bailey's Tiled Primrose was perfect to pull out those bits of blue in the main fabric and make them pop.
Over all, I am thrilled Joy's new quilt! It really neatens up the space when I am not sewing. And it is so colorful and happy!
