Cozy Construction and Care

Protect your Kindles, Ipads, Scrap-booking (Cricut, Silhouette, Xyron), Binding and Laminating machines from those nasty little dust bunnies with a lovely cozy that is guaranteed to fit like a glove! Each cozy features pretty, coordinating fabrics (100% cotton) that have been machine-quilted over a layer of batting and muslin lining. All seams have been finished and the binding has been hand-basted. A button, bow, or applique embellishment adds a delightful finishing touch to each cozy. Your Cozy will certainly be a pretty addition to any work space, and will keep your Cricut Expressions/Cakes, Creates/Personal Cutters, Cuttlebugs, Gypsies, Imagines, Kindles, and Ipads free from dust, scratches, and normal wear-and-tear and damage for years to come! All cozies may be machine or hand-washed in cold water. Line dry or use low heat when drying in a clothes dryer. A cool iron may be used, if necessary. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING INQUIRIES WELCOME.

Cricut Mini Cozy

I got my new Cricut Mini machine this week. So far, I haven't used it to cut anything out, but I'm impressed with it's design. It's small, streamlined, and fits on my desktop nicely. I like the fact that it will cut an 8 1/2 x11" piece of paper, too. No, it's not as great as the 12x12" machines, but it's better than the other small Cricut models.

Getting a new machine meant that I had to make a new Cozy pattern. Honestly, I didn't think it would be too difficult because the shape of the Mini is pretty simple. So, I did what I always do when I have to make a new Cozy pattern--I procrastinated! :)

First I checked out iTunes for a while and downloaded a great new Christmas album by Phil Wickham. (My favorite Christmas carol, by the way, is "O Come, O Come Emmanuel.) Then I ate a donut. It was a cream-filled, powdered-sugar-covered beauty! Then I answered a few emails.

Finally, I knew it was time for the inevitable. I had put it off long enough. I had to make this Cozy! For the longest time I just stared at the machine. Then I got out my measuring tape, jotted down a few notes, drew a picture of my plan, and set out to start the Cozy. After cutting, sewing, basting, quilting, assembling, fitting, ripping out seems, cutting again, assembling again and sewing on the binding, this is what I came up with. (Drum roll, please)


Don't you just love this green argyle fabric???? It's my new favorite. I wanted to make this a "fun" Cozy because the Cricut Mini is just so cute!
