Dust Cover for Cami the Cameo

I used to work with a Dietitian named Cami.  Cami was short for Camille. 
My dust cover is not for Cami the Dietitian.  It is for my new friend, Cami the Cameo.  I don't really call her that.  I really don't name my toys but maybe I should.  She definitely deserves some respect for all she can do.
Anyway, I decided to treat her well and make her a little dust cover to keep her nice and clean. I had this scrap of fabric which is a double sided quilted fabric leftover from when I made a dust cover for my Expression some time ago.  I literally made this dust cover in 35 minutes which included the time it took me to put thread on my bobbin!

And here she is:

It isn't perfect.  I've talked about my issues with the Beast (my sewing machine) before but we got along pretty well today.  I found a pattern HERE and modified it a bit because I didn't quite have as much fabric as was called for so my cover may be a bit  more fitted than the original pattern would have made.  But I think it will do just fine and I am happy with it!

Clothes for Cami!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Wow- you did an awesome job on this! Your beast has been tamed- I think you do a great job at sewing- thanks for the link to the pattern! :)Amy

  2. Wonderful coverup. My Cricut & computers get dishcloths put over them when not in use.

  3. Love the dust cover Susan... I'm thinking I need a cameo...

  4. Hey Susan...finally made it to your site to see your new cameo cover....so beautiful! Mcuh prettier than mine. I just just used left over fleece from making dog coats for winter. I plan to eventually applique mine using the Silhouette. I love your Blog, too

  5. Love the cover - amazing how the choice of fabric can make something so plain look so stylish. Need to get some nice fabric and get going on a cover myself as well.

  6. I think it's very cute. I am thinking of making a carrying bag for mine as well. I like your cover.
