Sew A Piano Storage Bench Cover: Version Two Of Three
I made this two piece storage bench cover as the base for my entire plan. You could stop here, or...
You could add a ruffle or 2 or 3!
1
My ruffles are about 8 inches wide, hemmed on both sides to about 6.5 inches. They are 192 inches long, to cover a length of 96 inches.
2
So you need about twice the length to gather for ruffles. If your machine will not sew a long stitch like mine wouldn't, then hand baste
3
Where you want to gather it.
4
Then you can pull the fabric along the thread like a curtain.
5
Sew long stitches.
6
I used a washable fabric marker to mark along the fabric where I wanted to place the ruffle, using a yard stick to help make it straight.
7
I began pinning the ruffle to the top slipcover piece.
8
It was a bit difficult and I thought, "there has to be a better way."
9
It looks nice but it took me a long time to do this because of working upside down to place the pins in the right direction!
10
I realized I could sew the ruffle to a ribbon, and then sew the ribbon to the bench. Here I'm marking another washable marker line for version 3.
11
Then I could do the gathering separately instead of while I was trying to attach it to the bench. That idea worked but it involved the extra step
12
of sewing the ruffle to the ribbon.
13
This did make it a lot easier to work with when it was time to attach the ruffle to the bench.
14
How do you like the ruffle? It hides the opening of the storage bench!
