Sewing for Dad: Custom Amp Covers

Amp Covers: Sewing for Dad

Just popping in to show off these custom amp covers I made for my dad. He went to Jo-Ann Fabrics and picked out the fabric, a striped-brown vinyl.

Here's the large one!

Here's the small one! 

Could work for a sewing machine, tissue box, or other electronic case with a handle. Anyone interested in a tutorial for this type of cover?

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Oh YES! I would totally be interested in a tutorial for this. My husband has his Amp downstairs that doesn't get used as often as he'd like but our 15 month old is constantly playing with the nobs. Plus its dusty as all get out of town so anything to keep it clean, safe and away from the little guy would be awesome.

  7. Awesome! My husband plays the guitar and might like one for his amp. The vinyl also seems like a great choice for something like this. :)

  8. Yes, please! I've been procrastinating making a sewing machine cover, and this would be perfect. Love the way it would completely cover the whole machine, and I'm not good at figuring these things out.....but you sure are! Thanks.
