TV Cover

This project ended up being kind of hard to wrap my head around. But once I figured it out it was pretty easy to make.

The TV is just a rectanglar/ box shaped flat screen. But it has handles mounted on the sides that they wanted access to and the stand in the back had to be worked around. It had to be tight enough it would stay on but loose enough it could slip on and off easily.

Here are the access holes for the side handles.

And the back view. I did darts on the top to take care of the excess fabric from the stand.

I know it kind of just looks like a garbage bag. It is actually black vinyl. Like the kind you would use on a picnic table cover. It is soft on the inside and water proof on the outside.
It turned out pretty cool!

Pillow Case Dress

On a whim I decided I wanted to make a pillow case dress. I have been seeing them everywhere and thought they were adorable. So I went through my scraps, found this tutorial to figure out the arm holes, and this is what I came up with.

Its kind of long, but it is for a 4 year old, not a 2 year old.
Not bad for one hour of sewing!

Vacation is over!

My vacation is over and I diving head first back to work!

First on my agenda is making a cover for a flat screen TV.
The Rose Shop in Sandy has a large flat screen TV that they are using in their green houses for wedding etc. They do not want it to get it scratched by tree limbs or accidentally watered.

So they asked me to make a cover for it.
The tricky part.... it has to be waterproof, sturdy, yet soft so it won't scratch the TV. And it has to fit around the TV stand too - so a very weird shape.
So I did my research. Outdoor canvas was nice, but only water-resistant, not water proof, and not very soft. Clear plastic was definitely water proof, but I would have to find something soft for the inside and then I would have to mess with two layers, plus it rips easily and its hard to sew. But then I thought of vinyl. It was sturdy, and water proof. I went to JoAnns and I found some that had a really soft, almost fleece, lining attached to it. And it came in black! Bonus!

So I got the approval to use that vinyl fabric, took lots of measurement, got to work!

It is done and I am going to deliver it soon. I will take pictures then and post them.

I am so excited! It turned out a lot better then I expected!
