The contest for the kit ended 10/7/11. Even if you didn't win, you can still make the cover with Bari J's terrific tutorial...
Yay! Bari J. is back with another adorable sewing pattern. After everything your sewing machine has done for you, isn't it time you surprise it with a chic evening cover-up with flirty pom-pom fringe?! You could not find a more perfect fabric collection for this sewing machine cover than Bari's magnifique Paris Apartment collection, her first for Lecien. Merci, Bari, for providing our Sew4Home friends with such a delightful free project, plus the chance for one lucky person to win a kit to make their own Paris Apartment sewing machine cover.
Paris Apartment is so lovely, we expect it will fly off fabric shop shelves. The prints all have French names relating to rooms in an apartment: La Salle de Couture, a sewing room with dress forms and flowers; or Le Salon, a living room full of chintz Louis chairs and graceful chandeliers. Lots of wonderful possibilities with these prints... totally stashworthy!
