Sewing Machine Applique Pattern

Use applique to sew a sewing machine on a quilt or tote bag! If I took an art class and had to pick something and paint a study, it would be a sewing machine. What other item is the object of all my daydreaming? Two of my kids are currently taking a summer art class and I’m sure that’s why I’m even thinking about it.

And that’s the reason why this month I stitched up my sewing machine appliqué design into a Sewing Machine Art Study.

You can purchase the Love Sewing Machine Applique Pattern from my Etsy shop here.

My Bernina 1530 was my inspiration for this applique pattern. Isn’t she cute? Of course, I took some liberty and moved the screen down to the side so I could put the heart at the top.


There are some oddly placed seams in this little wall hanging, and that’s because I originally thought I was making a tote bag and two zipper pouches. After I changed my mind about that, I had to do some creative quilt-as-you-go to hide it (mostly). Then I used black binding to frame it like a real piece of art. 🙂

If you want to make one too, just prepare one sewing machine applique in each size and sew them to a 13 1/2” x’ 32” background.

The Love Sewing Machine Applique Pattern download includes my cute little sewing machine design in three different sizes, plus mirror images of the same sewing machine applique in case you are using paper-backed fusible web like HeatnBond (my favorite method).

Happy sewing!
