Is your sewing machine white and boring?
Don’t be discouraged if you don’t have the fanciest sewing machine on the block. With a couple of standard craft supplies and a little creativity, you will have the grandest machine on the block, neighborhood, state, country, maybe the world!!!
Here is some inspiration and how-to-fancy-up-your-boring-white-machine instructions.
The button machine makes me smile. Hop over to the Quilted Cupcake for her tutorial for decorating the machine. This is an old second-hand machine that she isn’t going to use, it is more for show but I don’t see why you couldn’t use it. You would have to stay clear of openings and levers but still doable.
Fabric on a machine!!!! Like two peas in a pod. Fabric decorating a sewing machine is the ultimate decorating idea. Stop by Dee Construction for her low down on how to make your own machine this lovely.
If you make a machine like that, do NOT drink any water if you take this with you to a guild meeting or quilt outing. If you drink anything you will most likely get up to go to the bathroom and when you come back, someone would have stolen this baby for sure, for sure. Go to 33 Stitches to see her instructions for making your machine as cute too.
Crafty Confessions used vinyl stickers to add snap crackle pop to her dull white machine. Lovin the dots for sure.
A Little Off Color did a great job restyling her machine with Mod Podge.
Another creative crafter with Mod Podge in their hands. I love the old prints and little bit of paint highlights. Beautiful! Stop over Cynthia Shaffer and see how she did it.
What a different a little bit of scrapbooking vinyl makes. Very elegant indeed. You can read more about it here.
A member on QuiltingBoards.com posted a picture of her charming machine. (You have to scroll a good bit down the page to find it)
Hmmm? Not sure which one I like better. Just kidding, love….love…love the red. Stitch Nerd does a fabulous job detailing how she painted her old vintage machine.
Another snazzy makeover from drab to fab. She used vinyl that she cut from her own vinyl cutter but you could just as easily buy some precut letters. Visit Sumo’s Sweet Stuff to read more about it.
