He has more faith in my sewing abilities than I do. I consider myself a "pretend" seamstress, able to do some mending and straight line sewing. I have always had spacial learning problems and patterns and maps are the places that these challenges are manifested.
A little side story (recorded here for my children's sake).
When traveling with my husband, on our first road trip, he told me to quick get the map and see where we were and if the approaching road was where we needed to exit.
I quickly opened the atlas, found the state we were in and turned the book upside down to place the ocean on the correct side of the car. He simply rolled his eyes and said, "OK, we are now lost." All these years later he usually asks one of the boys to help with the map navigation.
In my own defense, if we have traveled to a location, even if it was twenty years ago, I can usually retrace my steps back there. I believe this is a coping mechanism I have developed due to a lack of confidence in my ability to read a map.
Back to this pattern for covering any type of machine, appliance, electronic, etc.
I followed this extremely easy tutorial by Crafty Gemini. If I can do it, you can too.
Of course I finished it at 11pm so the lighting in my pictures is not great.
Drum roll please.....
The machine is at the office; therefore, the pictures show the cover over a cart.
The seem down the middle is due to the fact that I wanted the unfinished fringe (salvage) edge
so that I would not have to hem it.
This on my knitting needles, but I'm not holding my breath...I also"pretend" to knit.
Stay tuned for more Summer sewing/knitting projects.
