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. Orders will be shipped via USPS within 10-14 days of payment, and in most cases sooner. Click on pics to enlarge.

Excited about Bags!


A new friend, Michelle, recently asked me to make an iPad tote for her daughter, whose birthday was coming up. She chose an adorable owl fabric. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I think the striped green fabric is the perfect accent.
I added a 4-layered crocheted flower and a little owl "bling." Cute, huh?



This matching cell phone case coordinates nicely with the bag. And...I'm so happy to say that the bag and cell phone case were a huge hit! Michelle's daughter emailed me and thanked me for taking the time to make them. Shortly after that, Michelle told me that her daughter had replaced her Vera Bradley bag for my iPad tote. How cool is that??!! Eat your heart out, Vera!



So after I made this set for Michelle, I was inspired to finally make something for me. It's pretty pathetic that with all of the hundreds of Cozies I've made in the last 2 years, I've never made any for me. So, because I wanted to and because I really needed one, I made a new bag to carry all of my school things back and forth. (Trust me...as a 4th grade teacher, I am always bringing papers home to check!


I used two of my favorite Michael Miller fabrics from the collection called "Gypsy Bandana." I've been saving this fabric for a long time because I knew I wanted to make something out of it--I just didn't know what.



I added 3 crocheted flowers to the top and used metal rings to attach the handles.



After using this bag for the last 2 weeks, I am so happy that I broke down and made it. It's sturdy and it's the perfect size. I get a lot of compliments on it, too :)
