When I get done telling you what I did you can laugh if you want to. I went back to Joann fabric store to see if they had any table cloths left at 70% off. I was hoping for square ones with a zipper to use for my knitting machines. I bought the last circular table cloth for a friend of mine who has a sock machine. It was 3.89 plus 20% off for being a veteran’s dependent . They had five square table cloths left that were 52 in by 52 inches and they were 3.00 on sale and the 20 % applied to these also but no zippers. I bought three of them and I went and bought three zippers to put my own zippers in so that I could use them for knitting machine covers with zippers . When I showed my girlfriend (fellow machine knitter) what I was doing she said, oh, you can just put a hole in for the mast and lift the mast out to put it on. lol and I am still laughing. So I went and put the zippers in anyway on the two for my Brother machines. It took no time at all because of the stripes. They helped to cut straight and sew straight. Around the hole on top I put rickrack that I had so that the cloth would not tear. The passap machine was another story. No zipper there. I wanted the console covered so I just made slits in the back where the brackets are that hold the masts. Now I don’t have folded sheets on them and it looks so much better and now I can go knit. My next project is a vest on the passap . I saw this vest in a hand knitting magazine that has a schematic. Hope I am not wasting my time.
Are you done laughing now? 🙂
