Sewing Machine cover

My so cool vintage sewing machine was taking dust between two use.

So I made a sewing machine cover with a home decor cotton fabric from Ikea.

I bought cording to create my own piping.
It was really easy to make it with the zipper foot so I might become a piping addict.

Vogue 8527 Clutchbag

patron sac vogue 8527
For this Vogue handbag 8527 model C, I chose a purple plaid fabric and a purplish grey rayon-polyester fabric for lining.

I used an old jean and a sheet to underline respectively externals and internals pieces of plaid fabric.
The jean allows the bag to stay straight but added some difficulties for sewing.

I'm really proud of my bag, even if the zipper is not really well sewn nor the internal pocket.
It wasn't so easy for me, but not so difficult either so I will do it again!

I made a longer review of this pattern on Pattern Review.
