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.

Something Different

I love making quilted Cozies.  There's something about the hum of my sewing machine that is comforting.  And I just love fabric.  I'm obsessed with it.  I'm always on a quest to find the most beautiful fabric combinations.  And there are days when, after spending all day as a 4th grade teacher, I need the act of sewing random lines of uniform stitches at a high rate of speed to help me relax.  Quilting makes me happy.  

But long before I knew how to quilt, my mother taught me how to crochet.  And, although I don't have much time to do it, I still love it.  So...I found the perfect project for someone who likes to crochet pretty things, but doesn't have a lot of time:  fleece blankets with crocheted edges

A yard of fleece will make 2 baby blankets.  After I trim them to size, I add some holes around the edges using a skip blade.

Then, I just start crocheting.  Sometimes I use a pattern for my edges.  Sometimes I just make it up as I go.  

Sometimes I make shells, sometimes loops, and sometimes a lacy edging.

And...the good thing is, I can usually whip one up in an evening.

If you're interested in purchasing one of these blankets, check out my Etsy shop.
