Sewing machine cover

I made this as a practice project. The idea was to construct it in a manner similar to the way a seat cover is made. I'm happy with the way it turned out. If I had it to do over I would have used three pieces instead of five and the top and sides would be one piece of boxing..

Feedback is appreciated..

Looks very nice. A lot of work for a sewing machine cover, but good practice for car seats.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

You did a great job! It looks like half of a seat back to me. I just ordered some sewfoam and black vinyl. The plan is to replicate a rear seat bottom for a 1970 Cadillac. Supplies cost me approx 45 bucks. The rest will be honing my skills. But i've been practicing and now have much better control of my 111W. If all goes well, I'll attempt leather. Once I start, I'll post my pictures.
