Not sure if this is the right place for this but this is what I have made this weekend. Ignore the chalk marks, I can't seem to get them off.

Oooh wonderful!   0_0
I love the stitch sampler panel on the first one too.  8)
I nurse unloved vintage Berninas back to health and then just cannot bring myself to part with any of them... 807, 830, 840, 530-2, 930, 910, and a modded 717 in a Singer treadle base.

They're brilliant - and that sampler is a terrific idea.  Useful and looks good too.   0_0
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Wow, so intricate and artistic too. Is that machine embroidery - plus some appliqué? You must be chuffed to bits.

They're great. You must have a very big hoop on your embroidery machine!

They look fab.  :toast:

I have made covers for the vintage 201s but I really should do something for the overlocker and the coverstitcher, the flimsy plastic covers they come with are c**p.
Brenda.  My machines are: Caroline a Singer 201K-3 born 1940, Thirza a Featherweight 221K born 1949, Azilia a Singer 201K born 1957 and Vera, a Husqvarna 350 SewEasy about 20 years old. Also Bernina 1150 overlocker and Elna 444 Coverstitcher.

I agree ... Elvis's cover is a nasty, plasticky thing which is shocking considering the cost of him when bouhght new (or even new to me)... I call it his body bag ... and one day I will make something beautiful like the one in this thread.

At least The Splurgess (and The Splurge) have a classy sturdy semi rigid cover with beautiful bold lettering on.

The overlocker is a Juki MO 100 which was a Christmas pressy (I will write a review when I have road tested all the functions)
Embroidery Machine is a Brother Innovis V3
Sewing machine is, I will whisper this, a Pffaf Quilt (there I have said it) Expression 4.2
The one under the cover with the sample stitches is my very first sewing machine that Mum has had in a cupboard for years. A singer 7136 still in excellent working order.

12 x 8 (300mm x 200mm) is my largest.
