Clothes for Betsy!

My dear friend Linda, just got a new Bernina 750 sewing machine and she is so happy and excited!!!

linda's 750

So, I had to make her new machine, Betsy, a pretty cover to keep the dust off!!


I had some awesome scraps leftover from the “She Who Sews” quilt, so I used them!!


She doesn’t have Betsy sunk down into a new sewing leaf in the big studio table yet, so I had to sort of guess the size according to the machine dimensions.


But it seems to fit fairly well!!!  YAY!!


Happy Birthday, dear Linda!!

Yogi was really closely supervising me while I made it!!  LOL!!


What are you up to this weekend???



  1. Lucky Linda, love your new sewing machine cover..
    Oh and a Happy Birthday!!
    We have no power right now sew no machine sewing but can pick up my cross stitch...

  2. What a nice friend you are! Linda is blessed, indeed, with a thoughtful friend and a new sewing machine! And dontcha just love that fabric! I can hardly wait to sew my Lily a 'dress'.
    Blessings! from another Linda

  3. What a sweet friend! I just love the “She Who Sews” fabric and it works so well for a sewing machine cover!

  4. Way to go Linda for getting that nice Bernina and how sweet of you to make a covering for it! What are friends for anyway! The fabric is awesome. Great job.

  5. Yay for Linda! I would dearly love one of those machines o:) And, what a beautiful dress you made for Betsy!

  6. Very cute! I love the jumbo ric rac and the ties. So glad you have such a diligent supervisor. How are you liking life in the country?

  7. Happy Birthday, Linda! Love the beautiful cover for Linda's new machine! And of course, I always love to see Yogi! Have a great weekend!

  8. What a fabulous idea! Hello gorgeous Yogi.

  9. Lovely sewing machine cover , lucky Linda !!

  10. What a great and thoughtful gift you made for Linda! Yogi looks like the master supervisor! I'm doing the same thing I've been doing for the past I don't how many weeks -- shoveling snow and more snow. It's been snowing all day here again. I'm getting claustrophobic from being surrounded by 5 and 6 foot deep snow piles and drifts and I just want to see grass, even if it's brown!

  11. Congrats Linda on your 750 Bernina! I want one but keep saying no to myself, but after seeing how happy you are holding yours, it makes me want to go and buy one. And wow, to have a friend like Polly to make you a cover for it, is special….I love friends who are happy for one another!

  12. I made my friend a cover for her machine for her birthday. They are fun to make and I just love Thad fabric. How come you weren't in Madame Samm's hop for that fabric ? Happy Birthday Linda love your new machine.


Thank you sooooooo very much for taking the time to leave a comment! I am always happy to know that someone is reading my ramblings!! Polly :-)
