Show us your favorite SEWING project!

September was National Sewing Month, and Baby Lock asked visitors to share their favorite sewing projects. Many were featured on our social media channels, see some of our entries below.

12 Inch Workspace

Made a dress for my 21 month old granddaughter using the Destiny 2, Evolve and Ovation. Used piping, lace, gathers, a lengthened under skirt with two layers of tulle and finally an embroidered pig face for game day.


-- Peg from Arkansas

1000 SPM

Four coasters made in the hoop on my Destiny. Used IQ Designer to design/build the basic coaster, then added embroidery designs by Zundt for the centerpieces.


-- Michelle from Georgia

Quick-Set-Top-Loading Bobbin

Fancy decorative throw pillow. Embroidered letter and all sewing done on my Destiny II.


-- Jen from North Carolina

12 Inch Workspace

I recently completed a baby bag for a baby shower. The mom-to-be loves it, and her husband said even he would be proud to carry it! This project was completely sewn on my Baby Lock machine.


-- Donna from Wisconsin

1000 SPM

Last year visited my local quilt shop, haven't sewed since I was a teenager. Purchased a Baby Lock machine, took a quilt class and made this quilt for fundraising to support Pelotonia in Columbus, Ohio to end cancer!


-- Tamah from Ohio

Quick-Set-Top-Loading Bobbin

This is the before and after picture of the bassinet I re- covered for my first Great Grandson. Made on my Baby Lock Destiny.


-- Grace from North Carolina

Twin baby quilts


-- Geraldine from New York

I made a clutch wallet using my Babylock serger Ovation, and Babylock Destiny II. The fabrics used were brocade and satin that frays easily and are hard to handle. But my Baby lock machines helped me achieve professional quality results with precision stitches and finishing.


-- Renuka from Texas

Baby quilt my daughter requested. First time combining quilting and embroidery (and only my 3rd quilt) Sewing done on Ellure Plus and the embroidery (appliqué animals) done on the Spirit.


-- Terri from Oklahoma

Busy working on samples for Simplicity Patterns.


-- Mimi G of Mimi G Style

1000 SPM

Puffy paint on polka dot jeans makes for a fun rainy day project! I'm making a zipper pouch to hold sewing supplies.


-- Kate of See Kate Sew

Quick-Set-Top-Loading Bobbin

My sewing room is my little paradise. My new Destiny 2 is the best little helper, ever. Creative ideas enter my head whenever I sit behind that machine. Aprons and household items are my favorite things to design.


-- Christa from Virginia
