Selvage Sewing Machine cover

DSCN7425          I have been busy making selvage fabric projects this week.   I taught a kids’ sewing camp this week at the quilt shop ( 3 afternoons) using selvages to make projects.  The first day they made a selvage pincushion, a selvage tissue holder and a tree ornament using selvage for the decorations on the tree ornament.  What fun to make their own fabric using the selvages.  It was great practice to sew a straight stitch and use the backstitch.  They also had to sew on a button for the ornament and sew the closing on the side of selvage pincushion.  On the second day, they made a zippered pouch using selvage.  It was their first time putting a zipper in a pouch.   On the last day, they made selvage fabric to make a cover for their sewing machines.  It was a good day to make a sewing machine cover because it was raining when they left class.   The kids had fun sewing the projects.  They did a great job.  The pictures are my sewing machine cover sample for the class.  Two of the kids wanted to sew on the selvage strips on a diagonal like my sample.  The sewing machine cover is reversible.  The kids picked out a fat quarter to use for the other side.        Have fun sewing and crafting.
