Silhouette SD Cover Redo

I have a Silhouette SD and when the company came out with another machine (a smaller one) I saw that they had dust covers for them. I thought a dust cover would be great because my SD sits out all of the time and collects dust when not in use. I thought that this new machine had to be about the same size as the SD and figured the dust cover would work, plus it was on SALE, so I bought it. I found out that no, the SD is larger and the cover would not fit, Darn. Not only that but I couldn't return it...or maybe I could but I would have to pay shipping to send it back. I figured I had three options 1) buy the cover for the Cameo and cut it smaller (it would be more expensive), 2) make my own (with what time plus the trouble of getting it right), or 3) make this small one bigger. So I went with option 3.

I had this scrap fabric from a project I did a while ago and I really loved the colors in it and thought it would go well with the grey cover so I went to it. Sorry I have no progress pictures. I literally just cut the cover where I wanted to add the extension fabric, pinned it together after seeing how much I would need to make it big enough and sewed it together. Voila! It was so simple and I actually love this little pop of color on my grey cover.

Is there anything that you have done to make lemonade out of lemons? Do tell.
