I hope that I finally managed to minimize the picture of my Singer 201 and the cover I made for her.

Your Singer is so pretty and I love your cover. Did you design the  (machine)on the cover yourself.

Thank you Carol.  I had fun making the cover.  My machine came without a box or cover.  I read that they made this model in either hand crank or  with a gear driven motor and a knee lever to run the machine.  I had a New Home that came with the knee lever.   My DH installed this Singer into the cabinet that came with my first Singer Athena 2000.

Nice looking machine, Marianne - so shiny!  did you just wing your cover or did you have a pattern?  I need to make one another one for mine, made a  quick and easy one, no quilting, just one layer of fabric, but you are giving me ideas.

Weezee, Yes, the machine on the cover is a  home made design.  It's easy, just draw something on paper that has the form or figure of the sewing machine and  put that on black fabric and cut it out.   I quilted the cover for the machine on the machine and I used  a plastic machine to embroider the stitch regulator.  That stitch regulator doesn't show up all that good in the picture of the machine. She came threaded with red thread and  I "threaded" the machine on the cover with red thread.  I had fun with that.  That is the third sewing machine cover I made. The other covers are for my Janome and my Singer Quantum 6000.  The last one is an embroidery/sewing machine.

Debbie,

thanks for the compliment.  I have no pattern.  I watched on Youtube how to measure the machine and I made the first two covers out of a old bed sheet. Waste not want not!  I practiced machine quilting on all covers. I  also watched a woman on Youtube embroidering with  a zigzag machine.  Put fabric into an embroidery frame with stabilizer behind it and draw  a picture.  My cover has the scissors and a thimble.   The thimble doesn't show up in the picture.   I'm learning by watching Youtube, since I can't take classes.  I have severe allergy to manmade chemicals, that includes all scents, perfumes and so on.   I wear an odor filtering mask when I go shopping, but it makes breathing hard.  I can't sit an hour or two through  a class and I can't order people to wear no scent and to wash their clothing in scent free detergent.  Marianne
