I love classical things as they relax my soul. And if you are like me, then you should go for this one. You can buy it online or build it at home with your sewing machine.

If you are a bit colorful person, then you should choose this option. The variety of colors will make the cover stand out in your room. Choose a fabric that has those features. 

Search it online and see what comes up, and then choose the one or buy it at home if you have not found a suitable cover for your machine. The door is always open.

3. Buy a Minimalistic Design

Now, this idea is for those who don’t love fancy things and want a simple and minimalistic design. If you are one of those people, then you are welcome.

Get a solid neural-colored fabric like white, grey, or pure black to build the cover. Yes, you can mix white with black and vice versa to create a new look. But I would say go creative and think about what you can build.

Do not stress yourself as it is not a too heavy task and it is not your priority. So take it that way. Okey!

4. Get a Nature-Inspired Machine Cover

I will tell you what my mother used to do to cover up her sewing machine back in the day. She personally designed some flowers on a white fabric and then bordered it with a red string. And that looked marvelously.

If you are a nature lover like my mother, then you should also design plants and flowers on your cover and use them.

5. Choose Whimsical to Let Your Imagination Go Wild

Whimsical is all about creativity. Buy fabrics with whimsical prints like polka dots, stripes, or even unicorns to build this design. 

Plus, add some more to it, like ribbons, to make the cover a bit more beautiful. It is like the previous design but in a new way. Try it. 

6. Choose Denim for Durability

You may know denim, thanks to jeans. But you can use denim to build your sewing machine cover. It is durable and looks amazing. You can repurpose your old jeans into a cover, and it is easy.

But if you like new things, then you should buy a new denim fabric to buy your machine cover. No doubt it is one of the best choices you can make.

7. Go with Patched Covers to Tell a Story

If you love storytelling or have a bunch of stories from your past life and you want to start with your life then the path that moment in the cover.

Attach some photos of people, places, and others that may help you remember something from your life. I know it’s a bit emotional. But people use it to build the cover. You can try it. 

8. Choose a Cover with Solid Colors

This one is also a minimalistic design. But a bit different. Choose a solid cover with no sting attached to it. Just pure color. 

But cut the fabric in a way that creates new designs without using any other colors or designs. It can be fascinating and also a bit difficult. If you have to gut, then dare you to go for it. 

9. Add Pockets and Pouches

If you want to make the cover a bit more useful, then add pockets and pouches to it on the side or in front of the cover. 

This will help in a big way when working on your machine. It will give you a clutter-free working experience.

10. Build Your Own DIY Sewing Machine Cover

Lastly, forget everything I have said and buy your own DIY sewing machine cover using any fabric, nay denim, or anything you can think of. Just build it.

Do not overthink it and start the work, and it will come naturally, and you will have plenty of ideas. I also have experience that is why I am saying it to you.
