I saw some really cute pincushions while scrolling through Whipup the other day and thought I might like to make one! It was very easy as all you need is a teacup (or other cute thing), some fabric and some wadding and glue. I added the mushroom and hedgie for a bit of cuteness.
What do you get when you have a whole heap of little squares sewn together and some wood grain fabric?
A cover for your overlocker of course!
I made the sewing machine cover (with the gnomes on the front) from the tutorial on the Spool website and figured the overlocker shouldn't miss out. I just measured the overlocker and adjusted the pattern pieces to fit (apparently there are not many overlockers which are the same size, they are all different!)
I thought it might be nice to make a patchwork cover so I made enough squares to cover the pattern and then sewed them together and cut the pattern from the patchworked fabric.
I might make myself a table runner now, I quite liked sewing them!
