Through the microscope

I have finished the microscope dust cover, or microscope cosy as I like to call it.

Here are some pictures of it being modelled on my Nikon S. It looks a little large because it was made for a taller  trinocular AO Scope not the Nikon.

I’m rather pleased with it although I did too much fancy stitching which took a lot of time. In future I shall make rather less elaborate microscope cosies.

  1. Cute! I like the names of the scientists stitched in…


  2. I can tell it was a labor of love. 🙂


  3. Hello Spocks Sister,

    Fab work. You could come up with great free motion quilting patterns based on cells seen through a microscope. An idea for your next microscope cosy…???
