Calculator Cozy

My darling husband, Richard, has a fancy graphing calculator. It’s much larger and heavier than a regular scientific calculator. It came with a thick and bulky leather case which he did not like very much.

So Richard went through our sock drawer and pulled out a sock. It just happened to be one of the old socks we got on a flight to Singapore. I think it’s the blue that drew him to it. He thought it would be just right to replace the chunky calculator case.

One day as I was looking for stationery on his desk, I saw his sock-covered calculator. As a crafty person, this just won’t do! I cannot imagine my husband pulling this calculator out at a meeting and slipping the sock off onto the desk! What was he thinking?

So with my newly acquired felt making skills, I handmade him a custom sheet of felt in two shades of blue. He liked it and gave me a design brief for his new calculator cozy. The main priority is that the cozy must by slim, light and easy to use. He liked the snap fasteners on the Aunt Flo’s purses and wanted the same closing on his cozy. He is a perfect client! He knows what he wants and he is open to ideas. Gotta love that.

Here it is! A Richard-approved calculator cozy 🙂

Well, Richard has been nagging at me to rest now. I’ve had a cold for over a week and I’m not that much better. “I have not seen you rest since you’ve fallen sick! GO TO BED!” he says endlessly. I’m a terrible patient. I can’t stand not doing things. But I must rest. So I’m going back to bed and I hope all of you are in the pink of health!

Take care and have a good week! I might see you soon.
