If you happen to have this type of duster, you know you are always needing to buy replacement covers to slide onto the handle. My sister suggested that I make my own reusable duster covers that I can just throw in the wash when I’m done. I have no idea why I didn’t think of this a long time ago. They’re super easy to make, and a great use of those random fleece pieces that are lying around my sewing room.
- Air soluble or heat erasable pen
- Fabric scissors
- Sewing machine and basic sewing supplies
Sew it all Together
- Cut four pieces of fleece into 5″ X 7″ rectangles.
- Stack all four pieces on top of each other.
- Mark the center vertically all the way down using an air soluble or heat erasable pen.
- Pin the edges to hold all the layers in place as you sew.
- Use a straight stitch and sew along the centerline.
- Grab your pen and ruler, then measure 3/4″ over on either side of the stitching and draw the lines all the way down.
- Sew along you drawn lines.
- Measure 1″ up from the bottom and draw a horizontal line across.
- Measure the rest of the way up marking every 3/4″.
- Cut along each line from the outer edge up to the stitching without cutting any stitches.
- If you used a heat erasable pen grab your iron and erase the pen off.
