I know Miss Carole and she is an awesome designer! You did an excellent job with her pattern Terri! Love your color choices!

Terrie ...

Thank you, Donna & Kimberly! I’ve made others’ designs for tape measure covers, but Carole’s pattern is my favorite. As I told her, it is very well-engineered as to its structure and fit onto the tape measure, and the instructions are very well done.
I’ve done other covers that you have to finagle and jury-rig in order to get them to fit properly. This one, just stitch and go! 😀
