My winter coat, which my dad bought for me, was hanging on the back of the spare room door. I LOVE this Skater duffle coat. I didn't want to use space in my wardrobe to hang it for the winter and it was quite heavy for the rail so I hung it on the back of the door. It is not a good place to hang a wool coat; in front of the window in a dusty room. So I made a garment cover in oooh about 30 minutes, here's how I did it.
I also used this fabric to cover my clock in the same room.
It was also a fabulous fabric to line a crochet bag.
I made a handy project bag to take needles and yarn on holiday in July to make my next Minerva make. Can I get needles on a plane? - do tell of your experiences.
Finally the last piece was used for a little peg bag.
So you see, you don't have to be a super seamstress to enjoy a bit of machine sewing. Those online purchases where you don't get to feel the fabric can always open up new doors.
Thanks Minerva Crafts.
