Making a Sewing Machine Cover - Stage 3
The lining is now made. I have used a stiff thermal curtain lining, which is fluffy on one side. I cut one large piece, 21 and a half by 24 inches, and two side panels. The side panels started as rectangles measuring 8 and a half by 10 and a quarter inches, and I used the same 8 inch plate for rounding off the top corners.
Here is the completed lining, standing up all by itself and showing the fluffy side. The seam is stitched smooth sides together with a quarter inch seam allowance. This material does not fray, and these raw edges will be hidden between the two layers of the finished cover.
Let's see if I can have the binding on by tomorrow...
