How does everyone cover their Cameo when they are not using it?? I Had the Original Silhoueette and was able to store it in a cubby I had. but this bad boy is much bigger... could use some ideas! THANKS

I don't have a cover for mine, but it sits on my desk and a cover probably wouldn't be a bad idea. I would bet that you will start to see them pop up on Etsy pretty soon!

I was planning on sewing one for mine. I prefer to leave it right on my desk I use the darn thing so much. Now, my original, soon the Cameo!

Here's a link to a silhouette cover pattern...might only need some slight adjustments, but looks easy enough for even a "not so great" seamstress. sil cover

here's another pattern (not free): cameo cover pattern


I was thinking about getting the tote, and just keeping it in that, but seems like a pain to keep taking it out.

Keep us updated as to how it comes out and how hard the pattern is to follow. I don't sew very well so it would have to be EASY!

I keep my Cameo on my desk and just cover it with a piece of cloth to keep the dust out.... not that it gathers much dust I use it often lol

I bought the tote... and I wouldn't recommend it... unless you planned on lots of traveling with it and carrying lots of stuff with you... the thing is HUGE., like HUGELY HUGE ... I think I could pack enough clothes in it for a weekend crop, as well as the machine, and laptop, and scrapbook.... I had trouble finding a space large enough to stash the tote... I maybe leave the house to scrapbook no more than 3 or 4 times a year... and most of the time I could preplan my pages well enough to have precut whatever I needed and not have to take the cameo with me ... BUT a good dust cover pattern would be a dandy idea~ It wouldn't be that hard for me to make one up... the time is the issue for me. And the fact that I've been asking dh to fix a glitch in the sewing machine pedal for about a year now.

Can I ask - what is a "fat quarter"?
I'm thinking it might be some sort of quilting term but not sure.
I am going to try and make a cover but could someone give me the measurements of how much fabric I will probably need?
Thank you!

Fat Quarters are pre-cut and pre-measured "quarters" of fabric that you get in the quilting section of your craft store or fabric store. Quilters use them to quickly cut out shapes and coordinate many of them into patterns. Cheap and easy to use too!

I need the dimensions of the Cameo. I left mine at home and I'm going to the fabric store at lunch to pick up some fabric.

I have a tutorial on my blog on how to make fabric covers for your machines. For my sample I used the Cameo. http://www.creationsbyyaritza.com/2012/01/making-fabric-covers-for-your-tools.html?m=1

I'm pretty sure you'd need the permission from the pattern designer to do this. Most pattern/designs are copyrighted. She might give permission to make a small amount of them for resale though if you ask.
