Annie is Organized!

Protect your cherished sewing machine with its own quilt! Each cover features slip pockets on front and back, a zippered pocket on the left side, and a mesh slip pocket on the right side. For easy access to the sewing machine handle, there is an opening at the top. Flaps with magnetic snaps cover the opening.

Under Cover

The pattern includes complete step-by-step instructions for covers in three sizes to fit many popular machines:

SMALL: Fits machines measuring 12½”H x 15½”W x 6½”D (such as most current BERNINA 3 Series machines)
MEDIUM: Fits machines measuring 13”H x 17¾”W x 8”D (such as most current BERNINA 5 Series machines)
LARGE: Fits machines measuring 14½”H x 20½”W x 8”D (such as most current BERNINA 7 Series machines)

The pattern and Add-on Video include instructions for measuring your machine and making adjustments as needed to fit your particular machine.

Add-on Video notice: There is an Add-on Video available for this pattern. The Add-on Video is specially designed to support specific parts of the pattern and help you learn our best techniques. It doesn’t replace the pattern — it will enhance the sewing experience.

If you are a machine shop, this is a no-brainer. A featherweight club will love this! Actually who wouldn’t love it????

Finally – Great Ruler Storage

Annie Unrein to the rescue! We all have been looking for a great way to store – and carry – our rulers. This ruler wrap is perfect!

In your sewing room, it is designed to hang on the back of a door in all of its 72″ glory. There is a multitude of pockets to hold the rulers AND a pocket designed to hold a cutting mat.

It can be folded up to two sizes – one if you are transporting a mat and the other for rulers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a great basis for a class! Machine quilt the foundation, learn how to insert zippers, use mesh, bind units, install hardware…okay a series of classes!

Did you realize that 20 of the top 100 patterns are bags???  If you aren’t offering a bag of the month club, you are not meeting your customer’s needs!  Who can make just one?  When their friends and family see them, they will ALL want one – and may take a class for the first time because they may find it less intimidating than a quilt!  What a great way to gain new customers!

 

Finally – A Fabric Mesh!

It is no surprise that Annie Unrein of Patterns by Annie has created the perfect mesh for all of your purses, totes, and storage needs!  Vinyl mesh has been around for a long time and still is the best choice for some applications.

But this polyester mesh is easy to sew; soft and pliant – the perfect choice for pockets so you can see what is inside.

Organize your Rulers Today

Having the right tool for the job applies to quilters too.  I have learned that the right ruler can save time and money – as well as guarantee that my final project will be something I can be proud of.  Storing them, however, has been a problem – until now!

Item #194RK  Retail $10.00

As you can see, it is made to fit over a hanger so you can now “hang” your rulers so they are easily accessible and protected.  An added bonus?  The clutter has been removed from your cutting table!

The pockets are designed to hold 12 and 24 inch rectangles as well as squares from 6 to 12 inches as well as a rotary cutter.  Adjust the pockets as needed.

In my case, I have a LOT of Creative Grids® specialty rulers so I need to include more than one ruler in each pocket.  Annie Unrein of Patterns by Annie has created a polyester mesh that is lightweight and the perfect divider for these pockets.

In a clutch, choose Annie Unrein

Frankly, I was always intimidated by Annie Unrein’s patterns.  After all, I saw the samples – and they were perfect.  She is an expert seamstress and teaches threadology classes.  I bet she even makes tailored clothes!

But then, I saw her demonstrate at Road to California – and she made it look so simple that I thought I should give it a try.

As soon as I got home, I ordered her iCases pattern.  This one has a zippered pocket to hold the cord and has instructions for two sizes – exactly what I needed.PBA218 Item #PBA218  Retail $9.95

Annie has created a technique that makes all of her bags doable by anyone – even me!  It turns out that you create everything in panels.  Then the panels are placed on top of each other and bound together like a quilt – now that I can do.

And I did!  And now, I feel like my last name should be Bradley.  Friends came over last night and thought I bought my first project.  I consider that a win!

Soft and Stable – another Annie product – provides just the right amount of body and made the binding lay perfectly.

Why not add some of these projects to your class schedule?  Once they see how easy it is, they will want to make more.  I immediately ordered three more patterns.  These will make great gits – and I already know I can’t stop at just one!

These “Open Wide” Pouches come in three sizes.
