|Year of the Scrap|
There are so many wonderful FREE tutorials and patterns available that choosing which to make is almost as hard as choosing which scraps to use first! Here are just a few to whet your appetite....

|Cotton Creations Tutorial over a Pine Needles|
My machine is very small (15” wide x 12” high x 8” deep) as I need to take it out and about with me. For this reason, I have decided to use the patchwork cover from Sew Delicious as inspiration but make a few changes (pockets on the side panels for stencils and cutters, a rounded top to fit snuggly and a hole in the top for the sewing machine handle to poke through).
|Pretty fabric scraps get a new lease of life|
|Side Panels with lined pockets|
In the meantime, pop over to Susie's Sunroom to see what she's up to. And if you have a cover you've made, whether recently or an old favourite, then be sure to post a photo of it on the Across the Pond Flickr group. We all need a little eye-candy-inspiration.
Sew until next time .....
