    what a brilliant idea! I have a thread catcher but keep all my other tools just strewn on the table…not good as they often find their way to the floor 😦 And the fact that this doubles as a machine cover is even better! Can’t wait to make one. Thank you so much for the pattern 😀

    Such a great idea, going to make some for my church sewing group. We make burial gowns for premature babies. Good way for each to keep up with their own tools.

    Hi
    I’m a novice to sewing but desperately want to make this as a gift to my mother in law. I have some technical material questions as I’m in UK and not so familiar.
    Batting – is this same as wadding and what weight do i need (choices are 70g, 200g and 270g)
    Fusible fleece and interfacing – are these the same? What are the types needed if buying in UK? Thanks
    Tania

      Hello Tania! Well, since I’m not in the UK, I am not familiar with your terms or what you have available. I believe batting and wadding are probably the same thing, but I do not know the differences in those weights you mentioned. I think some google searching would probably give you better answers than I can provide! Fusible fleece and interfacing are not the same thing. Both are Pellon products and you can read more about their properties on their website: http://www.pellonprojects.com/products/. This may help you recognize what a similar material in your area would be. I hope this helps a bit! ~ Nicole

    I made your undercover mat/machine cover for a quilt-friend who will be caravanning. She loved it. Dual usage was the deciding factor for me to make it. I made half the pocket as a zippered section for ease of storing often-used tools when travelling.
    I’ve just bought a new, lighter machine to take to weekly craft! so will be making a mat/cover to use. Maybe make a full zipper so I can contain my bits & pieces while travelling. My new machine only has a plastic bag to tuck in!! Easy to lose!
