Since the sewing machine does not completely ?ll the
carrying case, the empty spaces around various portion's
of the sewing machine can be used for carrying the vari
ous accessories. For that purpo-se, a pocket 44 is formed
on the one side panel 23 to extend inwardly toward the
head 13 above the base 10. This pocket is formed from
stored as a relatively compact package having much less
bulk than the sewing machine itself.

the invention is not limited to any particular form, and
various modi?cations and rearrangements may be made
therein Without departing from the scope of Ithe invention
