Protect Your Investment! Sew Pretty Machine Covers!

Hi friends! Your craft machines cost a pretty penny but if you treat them right they should last for years to come. One of the best ways to protect them is to make a dust cover to keep them clean and protected from dust, glitter, flocking and embossing powders and to keep the casings from discoloring from light.


I’ll show you how to make a simple machine dust cover that can be made for a die cutting machine, sewing machine, Minc, Laminator or whatever you have!


Supplies for a custom die cut machine cover:
sewing machine & thread (or hem tape, glue)
scissors and/or rotary cutter and mat
Lace or ribbon to embellish if desired.

1. Measure machine you wish to cover.
2. Cut a piece of cloth large enough to cover the top, from and back of the machine plus 1″.
3. Cut 2 pieces of material 1″ larger than each end.
4. Sew together as directed in the video.
5. Hem the raw edges.
6. Embellish as desired.
