Sewing machine cover tutorial

Our sewing machines need covers so dust and sunlight don’t get into the essential parts.
My Janome came with a plain white plastic cover which I used for years but I have always wanted to make some soft fabric cover which looks beautiful and cute. And as I started to do some simple quilting I have decided that quilted sewing machine cover is a good beginner quilting project.
