If my project to become more creative and bring back my passion for sewing succeeds, a new sewing machine is on the top of my wish list! No matter what happens I'll probably keep my Husqvarna for many more years for nostalgic reason :)
The cover for my Husqvarna I started making about 15 years ago. I've had the quilted front piece lying in a box for all that time until I, this past winter, finally decided to finish the cover. And I did it in the simplest fashion possible. I skipped the quilting and just sew together big pieces of matching fabrics. There's a hole for the handle up top and it has a lining, so it is reversible, but the back side has no details so I prefer to have "the right" side out which apart from the quilt has a few handy pockets.
