Through the microscope


This time the microscope cosy is for me. It’s a little simpler than the last one but not much. It’s cotton lined with lint free microfibre cloth. It takes ages to do because I have to overlock every seam. If I didn’t overlock each seam the microfibre cloth might fray and produce fluff and the last thing I need is a fuzzy microscope.

I chose orange bias binding to contrast with the teal cloth and stitched on a Nikon patch which cost me three quid on eBay.

Very simple and rather smart. I’m rather chuffed with it.

  1. After you master the microscope cosy, you could move on to telescope cosies.


  2. Yes, it’s great. Wouldn’t mind a human-sized one! The Nikon patch is a nice touch. Happy New Year.
