I decided to get serious about my Singer Futura SES 2000....
I needed a cover for my Cricut Imagine . On the Custom Crops website there is a free Cricut Expression Cover sewing pattern  I printed the pattern pieces   then instead of taping the pieces together as per instructions I used some painters tape and taped the pieces to the top of the Imagine at the appropriate ends and with the fold line acrossed the middle of the top of the imagine I took sheets of copy paper and filled in the gaps  to add length  ...with the side pieces its just a matter of bringing the fold line back aprox. 4 inches...

I used a Damask print fabric for accenting   and the main piece is a tannish colored denim....

I used an embroidery design from Embroidery Library and used colors was the very first time
for splitting a design for me so I kinda goofed a little bit but think I recovered ok with my little red button
for an "a"........hope you like it                Jodi
