Gettin' My Sew On

I've been wanting to make a sewing machine cover, well, ever since I bought my sewing machine! I hate having to dust it and I finally got around to making one. After I saw the tutorial on Sew Chatty...
...I knew it was the one I wanted! It looked so quick, simple and most importantly, beautiful!! that I made it minutes after finding it:)

Anyway, I loved the look so much after I made it, I made a matching pillow for my sewing chair! I can not get enough of these fabrics!

The cover is reversible, how great is that?!? I used some linen fabric that I've been saving for quite some time(got a yard of it in a sale bin at JoAnn's for $2.50!) and the orange and blue fabrics are Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow(probably my favorite fabrics at the moment). The yellow is Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane...another favorite of mine!

I've been wanting to use brighter colors for my sewing corner and these have done the trick to make the space feel so springy....even though we just got snow again this morning.... SERIOUSLY?!?!
I'm so ready for spring, and this snow business is not cool right now.

And aren't these shabby ruffles precious?!? I officially want to put ruffles on everything!

I want one! And not the sewing maching cover ( although, let me clarify----that is INCREDIBLE!)but it may not fulfil it's purpose fully in my house with there being no sewing maching---- but the cushion! YOU'RE IN-CRE-DI-BLE! You know what I'm saying sister. Nice one!
