Now my Juki is fully dressed...

I'm happy to report that my Juki is now fully dressed, and fully dust-proof! I finally turned my three 6" Lucky Stars blocks into a cover for my Juki yesterday, using some Architextures crosshatch in black for my background fabric, with a few pops from Sweetwater's Noteworthy on the side pockets. I'm really happy with how this little cover came together, and it fits my machine perfectly, so I'm a happy camper.


I adapted a tutorial I found here to fit my machine and made a few small cosmetic changes to it, like adding three Lucky Stars blocks (L-R: February, March, and Practice blocks), but it's a great tutorial, I highly recommend it if you're wanting to make a machine cover that fully covers your machine like this one.


Speaking of Lucky Stars, today is the first of March, so emails are heading out left and right to all of you Lucky Stars BOM subscribers, with the March Ninja Star block pattern. If you do not receive it this morning, please first check your Spam or Junk folder, as it may be hiding out there. If you don't see it there, by all means, send me a quick email so I can help you get the pattern in hand.

March Lucky Star block - the Ninja Star

Have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend!


  1. That cover looks great! I just bought a Juki on eBay (literally a couple hours ago) and am already thinking about a cover for it. I'm loving the Ninja Star pattern you've just sent out so they may be featuring. Thanks for linking to the tutorial!

  2. It looks the little blocks on it too!

  3. Wonderful! Have considered a cover for my new Horizon 8900, but no time time do it yet.

  4. Now *that* is a sewing machine cover. Truly wonderful!

  5. I'm so lazy, it would save me the effort of measuring my Juki if you shared the dimensions --

  6. LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I need a new Juki cover for a new Juki, too! It came with a rather sad, flimsy white plastic cover (shudder). :)

  7. What a fun use of your blocks!

  8. So glad your Juki isn't naked anymore!

  9. This is so cute! Nice work Elizabeth!

  10. Great sewing machine cover! I was just thinking the other day how I REALLY need a cover for my machine, book-marking the tutorial! thanks!

  11. Oh, wow! This is totally awesome. I think I see one in my future...(squinting)...yeah, it's out there somewhere!

  12. Love it and thanks for the link to the tutorial.

  13. Yay, you picked "C"! That was my pick, too! I love it!

  14. I really like that you incorporated these great blocks into your Juki cover!

  15. Really nice. I so need ot make a cover for my Lucy. Thank you for the link. I'm going over to check it out.


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)


Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
