My "Sweet Baby Jayne" Featherweight told me that she needed some accessories to help maintain her pristine condition. So I made a little bag to hold the foot pedal and cords when she is in her box. It was tricky figuring out how to get the ribbon through the top, but it all worked out okay in the end.
The ribbon came on a package of squares I bought last summer and was perfect for re-use as the tie for this bag.
(Hmmm wonder where those squares are?!?)
Here is the bag with the foot pedal inside, and tucked into the harp of the machine as it is stored in her box.
So cute, and safe from scratches.
Happy now "Sweet Baby Jayne"?
Now you want a quilted mat for the bottom of the box?
Oh my goodness, what a diva!
Yes... I know she is old (she just turned 50 this year!) and the storage box is hard :)
So, I opened up my selvage drawer (yes, I save those too!) and pulled out some selvages of recently used fabrics to make a little mat for her.
Sweet Baby Jayne does not like to work too hard and is much too dainty to do the heavy quilting jobs, but my Blue White is perfect for those jobs. She just plowed through quilting the layers with no trouble at all, even without a walking foot. It strikes me as really funny that I am sewing accessories for the dainty machine's comfort, using another heavy duty, hard working machine ;)
The selvage mat is just the right size to sit under the featherweight while sewing, and it fits perfectly into the bottom of the box for storage.
She better be happy now or I might have to change her name from "Sweet Baby Jayne" to "Princess Crabby Jayne"!
