Sewing Machine Cover

One of my goals for this month, craft-wise, is to use up more of my fabric stash.  Making a dust cover for my sewing machine was on my list of stuff to make, so I figured I'd bust one out this week.  It's a simple project, but a cover for your machine is necessary because dust really settles into your machine, man.  It's a serious problem (not really). Dust combined with the sewing machine oil gets all gunky. Having a dust cover keeps it pretty.

Anyways,  I decided to use two types of fabric (contrast!), because I wanted to match my chair cover for matchy matchy crafty room kitschiness.  It's kinda tacky, but I feel like the craft room/station is the only place you can decorate all crazy and get away with it.  I was about to add hot pink rickrack trim but I totally forgot about it and already sewn the side panels. 

Dimensions for the finished project were 7x15x14.  I cut out 2 panels for the sides (8x15), 2 panels for the front and back (16x15), and one for the top (16x8), 1 inch added for seam allowance. Easy peasy!

Matchy match, with leftover polka dot fabric to spare.  What else can I make to get rid of this fabric?!
