I have recently been acquiring machines to love back to usability. This little gem was not really what I was shopping for, but it's like a stray dog. Once you get past the street grime, there is a little show dog under there!

The finish on this machine is perfect. The list cal shop put STICKERS on that pearly blue. Nooo!

The case, though, is awful. It did its job and protected the machine, but now it needs to sit in the sun to air out and I am thinking of spraying the hardware and decoupaging it in a blue floral.

The project won't add value, but maybe some charm and dignity to this machine.

It had the original manual and accessories box, too!

What do you all think?

I love the blue on the 15 clones. I have a Morse in that shade. Your case recovery sounds delightful. Charm definitely, and a beautiful pattern to make the user smile.

I've been wanting to decoupage a case for a while now.  That little machine deserves a cute case.  I love the blue machines.

I have a nearly identical machine, branded White. I love it.

Same blue, gorgeous, and stitches so beautifully.

I would be very curious to see what you do with your case - please keep us posted with photos!

I saw one like yours locally for sale. The end was figured chrome. Very pretty!

I am currently on the hunt for a few feet of older wallpaper in a Victorian rose with blue pattern. I have found some lovely marbled papers that would give it some more curb appeal, but these are spendy, and as this is for resale . . . we shall see.

When I decoupage my case, I'll use fabric.  I know someone who has done this.  It turned out lovely.

Nice to find this topic! I haven't had time to keep up with all the threads so just found this one. Inezzme, I have a blue 15 clone as well - except it's a 3/4 sized one. It's in lovely shape, but my case is even worse than yours! The black paper covering has peeled off in one side and is threatening to peel off in others. I too am hoping to recover it - probably decoupage. 

Cheryl, if you decoupage yours with fabric, I hope you will post a tutorial here or on your blog! [biggrin]

I'll post it on my blog if I decoupage it.  Probably a tutorial.
