Sewing Machine Pad

Hooray for me, here is my February finish for the Bee, Myself, and I project.


It's a sewing machine pad with pockets to keep some of my most used tools right at hand. It was a super quick project and it also gave me the opportunity to try out a new machine binding technique that I learned on the Modern Quilt Studio's YouTube channel (here and here). Can I just say, I'm sold! I don't like hand sewing and have always bound my quilts by machine. This method is just so easy and you only have to sew around the quilt once so it's super fast too. All you need is this cute little tool - a bias tape maker.


After I trimmed down my pad, I had a large quilted scrap leftover. It's just too good not to use it for something else. Luckily, I have an idea. :)

This project was also one of the items on my Finish Along list for first quarter so double hooray!

  1. That is super cute, did you have a pattern or did you just make it up yourself? I always machine bind because I hate hand sewing, I'm going to check out those tutorials, because I love learning new things.

  2. this looks so good and practical too, I would struggle with the po. Have just made a mat for my featherweight, well it was meant to be a doll quilt I am doing in a group challenge but have no doll! Will blog about it when the big reveal happens with all the others

  5. Very cute sewing machine mat! One of those is on my list, hopefully that will make me stop losing my seam rippers all of the time.
