My house is dusty. Not just a little dusty but it's one of those deals where I can dust of a morning and by night time I could dust again and it irritates me that things in my craftroom get dusty.
The fabric for the covers I made for myself had a different purpose when I purchased it. I was actually going to make curtains for my French Doors in the dining room but since I went the whole "Stainglass" French Doors route I was left with the fabric. The fabric matched well in the craftroom and I opted to use it to make my dust covers.
I had originally thought I would make a cover for my Explore and my Cuttlebug but then I thought about my laser printer and my Canon Pixma Pro-100 printers and figured they needed covers too. And while I was at it why not make one for my laminator as well.
Somehow the whole sewing project just blew up and I ended up with covers for my Cinch and my Janome Sew Mini. I also made covers for my Xyron 5" creative station, Xyron 2.5" and even my little Xyron X. When my daughter saw the cover on the Xyron X she just looked at me and said "Really Mom? REALLYYYY?" and I told her "I had some scraps I needed to use".
The hardest part about it all was making all the patterns for the different shapes but once I started I knew I had to finish. Maybe I did got overboard but I have to say that I really love all my dust covers!
