My Singer 201 came with out a box or a cover, so I made her one. I might have gone a little overboard decorating it.  It comes with her likeness in front.  The Singer arrived with a red spool of thread.  She has that I added a thimble and scissors. I "threaded" her and I even put red thread into the needle.   I had fun!  The back of the cover has the  backside or the machine. It was a little mistake ironing the cut out down with the wrong side up.  The second  picture shows the back panel before  I sewed it all together.  The machine is now installed in my first Singer cabinet.  Marianne

Ginny, thanks but only half the cover is showing.  I tried again after I minimized the picture and once again only half is showing?  I must make a mistake?  Marianne.

I can see the whole photo Marianne. The page has frames which is why your photo appears cut off. You can view the whole thing by clicking on the photo. I read the threads here via email so I saw the whole photo before coming here to reply.

Chris, thank you for telling me to click on the picture.   I minimizes the cover until the thimble doesn't show anymore.    I had fun making that cover and the covers for my modern sewing machines.   I used to have fun with crayons and now I'm doing it with thread.

Nice cover, Marianne!! And thanks for sharing alittle of your life story! Enjoyed reading it!! My great Grammy(who came by herself, Pappy was killed) was from Germany who came to America to escape the harsh treatment there. She wouldn't let her three boys speak German and didn't breathe the word Jew. I guess when you face that kind of terror , you want nothing to do with it!! So I guess if I want to learn German , I will have to learn it by lessons. :)

Thanks Deb,

I'm having fun "decorating" my covers. If you want to learn German you can try at your local library.  Check if they have the Pimsleur  Language program in German?  We're trying to learn Mandarin Chines that way and we're trying to re-fresh our Italien.   We  listen and we're trying to repeat what was said.  It is supposed to teach the language accent free.  Yea, good luck with that one.  I can't get rid of my accent.
