Switching gears

I changed projects last evening and began cutting out the pieces for the equipment covers for my nephew's band. Last week at the show I took pictures and measurements for all the equipment that needed covered.
Just the amp in front and not the Marshalls

Thank goodness for my big cutting table! The car cover fabric is 55 1/2" wide and cuts very easily.

Here are the pieces cut out in piles of what belongs to what.

I keep the scraps too! The smaller pieces come in handy for making pedalboard covers. Since the fabric does not fray, I can piece together the smaller pieces to make a bigger piece by just laying one piece over another and edge stitching.

I need to get these done so I can try them out Saturday night when the band plays again. I will try to remember to take pictures of the covers on the equipment so you can see how they fit. Have a great weekend!

You are probably an old pro at these covers by now. It is a little like making a slipcover for a chair. You always hope they will fit fine.

That's a big project.
And very useful!
How does your machine like the cover fabric?
