Oh, I have only been planning this for seventy’leven years or so, lol. Finally, finally! I made a sewing machine cover out of TM patches and it is everything I’d ever hoped it would be!
I started out with a fabric cover and attached all the patches to that, then went back and hand sewed the patches together at all the corners with embroidery thread to marry the design. I decided against that carefully constructed hole for the sewing machine handle and covered it over.
My inspiration was the fabulous @roler’s beautiful cover from 2016, reinspired by @Abbeeroad’s awesome cover from 2019
What’s super awesome is that my patches are on their covers and their patches are on mine! Along with, among others, @curiousfae, @Wulf, @sheepBlue, @Phizzychick, @Bunny1kenobi, @JoyfulClover, and flyraeven. There are embroideries from @fatewineroses, @GMPNQ @thanate and @calluna (rescued when my tin from you started to fall apart, I saved all the bits!), and printed fabric from @Edel. There are a few of my own and a couple from my special friend Suereal who I miss very much.
This is going to make me so incredibly happy every time I look at it. It’s made of special memories and dozens of hours of crafty creativity from some really wonderful people. Thank you all!
