Sew A Piano Storage Bench Cover: Version One Of Three
I had made this simple slipcover for my bench to keep our cat from scratching the bench underneath. But it is not convenient when I want to open it.
This slipcover was easy to make, but it isn't very practical. Here is how I made a new one that works better!
Here is the bench without the slipcover.
See how she scratched it? Ugh!
I really like being able to store a lot of blankets here.
This is six yards of gray fabric that I plan to use.
I thought it would be easy to make a top, sort of like a fitted sheet on a mattress. Ha! That was harder than I thought!
Eventually I finally pulled out an old sheet and took apart one corner, so I could see how they had cut and sewn it.
Then I just "eyeballed" how to cut mine similarly.
After sewing that diagonal seam and adding some elastic, it finally looked like a fitted sheet!
To make the bottom section, I sewed one long piece together like a tube. Then I cut "Ts" and hemmed around them to fit around the hinges.
This is a rolled hem for the T. The fabric is a little stretchy, which allows it to stay in place all around the sides, and makes it easy to slip off.
The T all hemmed.
See the flaps? That is where I hemmed the T shapes to fit around the hinges.
Doesn't it look so nice?
Now it opens so easily!
I really love how this turned out!
Look, she is thinking about scratching it to test it out!
