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'll be in touch. See ya . . .
