I'm holding my breath!!!
Oh goody, I really managed to minimize the pictures. Marianne
Your machine is beautiful and I absolutely love the cover you made! Such nice work!
Your Singer is so pretty and I love your cover. Did you design the (machine)on the cover yourself.
Awesome cover for a great looking vintage machine.
Quilting My Rainbow
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.
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
