Keep reading below for a supply list and tips.

Supplies & Suggestions

Supplies you will need:

  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors
  • Fabric
  • Thread
  • Tape Measure
  • Pins

For a serger, you can measure your machine with the thread poles in the maximum up position or the down position. I chose to position mine about half way prior to measuring.

This project also works for making dust covers for household appliances or other items around your house! What will you sew a cover for? 

Please refer to the video for detailed instructions.
