Aunt Martha’s Sewing Machine Cover

cover_banner
I first learned to sew on my mother’s Singer Featherweight and still use it today. Despite being out of production for many decades, Featherweights are sought after and used by quilters. I made a cover for my Singer 221 and her big sister the Singer 301. The cover is usually a mix of four designer fabrics.

The front is the main feature and has been anything from a solid print to a pieced patchwork or embroidered picture to an applique in wool and felt. The back, top and matching sides complete the piece. There is even a loop to whisk it off your machine when inspiration strikes.

This sewing machine cover is made to keep your machine clean and attractive. The smaller size is tailored to fit over my Singer Featherweight 221.
I also make the 301 cover and a full size for all those other sewing machines. Of course they can be ordered in custom print combinations.

The Story Behind the Name…

martha_arthurThe Singer Featherweight is a model series of lockstitch domestic sewing machines produced by the Singer Manufacturing Co. from 1933 to 1968. They are significant among vintage sewing machines for their continuing popularity, active use by quilters, and high collector’s value.
Introduced as the model 221 during the 1933 World’s Fair, the model boasted aluminum construction, small size, and a weight of only 11 pounds.
Aunt Martha would have appreciated this solid lightweight machine that sews an excellent straight stitch. As a mother of three daughters she did a lot of sewing. I’m sure those girls were always outgrowing their clothes and her machine did a lot of altering. She was a homemaker who took pride in her home and kept everything spotless.She also would have appreciated a cute and practical cover for her sewing machine.
