The first "Kathy's Cozy" was made when I saw that my mother-in-law covered her Cricut Expression with an old towel. How could such a splendid machine be covered with a faded, thread-bare, ragged old towel? So, because I love my MIL and she loves her machine, I made my first quilted Cozy. It turned out great. She loved it (and me for making it for her). Now, three years later, my little business has grown and I make Cozies for more than 30 machines.
This is actually the second Cozy I made for my MIL. She picked the fabric and has a whole matching set. I'm her favorite daughter-in-law. (I'm also her only DIL...but I like saying that I'm her favorite.)
And...I know some of you are just like my MIL. You're holding out and still covering your machine with an old towel, pillowcase or T-shirt. So, this is your opportunity to win a brand-new, custom Cozy for a machine of your choice.
Here's what you have to do. Take a picture of your machine with your pathetic cover. Your machine can be a Cricut, Xyron, Silhouette, Cuttlebug, Sewing Machine, etc. Make it as pathetic as possible! Send the picture to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send an email confirmation back to you when I get it. You will have until July 31st to submit your picture. Please submit only 1 picture per person.
On August 1, I will post all of the pictures here on my blog and the voting will begin to find the most pathetic cover. Voting will end at midnight (EST) on Tuesday, August 6th. Votes will be tabulated and the winner will be notified on Wednesday, August 7th. The person receiving the most votes will receive a custom Cozy for that machine.
Have fun and be creative! I can't wait to see your pics :)
