Coverage . . .
Like it? It's my Cricut cover. I didn't use a premade pattern. All I used was the mouse pad that came with my Design Studio purchase several years ago. That formed the the pattern for the end pieces.
Once I got that cut, I laid a piece of quited fabric over my Cricut to get an idea of how much I would need for the actual cover. I then stitched the end pieces to the the cover piece, attached quilt binding all around the bottom, and . . . Voila! A Cricut cover.
Then, I took it to my local embroidery shop and had them put my initials in the center. I REALLY like this font. It's fun and creative.
The initials are in lime green and the cover is a deep chocolate brown. Btw, some of my cartridges are on a floating shelf in the background. What you see on the right is a homemade ribbon spool. I took a dowel, a wooden base, and drilled, glued, and painted them. I use washers in between the spools of ribbon to help them turn easier when pulling off lengths of ribbon. One of these days, I'll show you what I use to store large spools. (It's in the closet.)
Hope you like it. I'll be engaged in creative endeavors this weekend while connecting on a personal level with some peers. In other words, I'm goin' scrappin'!!! WOOHOO! Gotta love it!
I like scrapbooking, cardmaking, sewing, and scuba diving. My life revolves around my God, family, close friends, and my work. Because I have a life outside of my work and home, I don't always post as regularly as I should because life gets in the way. I deeply appreciate anyone that comes this way and I hope that you will pop in for a visit every now and then. Cheers and happy crafting!

Your fairy is called Fire Elffilter
She is a cheerful sprite.
She lives where fireflies mate and breed.
She is only seen on midsummer's eve.
Her dresses glow with fiery colours. She has delicate green wings like a cicada.
