Fire blanket cover tutorial

9 Apr


This fire blanket cover tutorial is designed for blanket measuring 100 x 130 cm (39,4 x 51,2 “)

Begin by making a pattern height 43½cm x width 23cm (17,1″ x 9”) These measures include seam allowance. Cut the fabric in two identical-size pieces. We used Ada&Ina’s Chevron & Chervil white linen fabrics. Click images below to enlarge.

After your fabric is cut make a 2 ½ cm (1″) hem to the short edge of the fabric. Cut two pieces of velcro measuring 5cm (2″) and arrange them on top of the hem. Make sure they are on the same positions.

Sew two seams to secure the velcro and the hem. Turn the two fabrics right sides together and attach with needles. To form a pouch sew the long sides and finally the top edge of the fabric.

Turn the pouch right side up and sew the top edge. Then measure about 4cm (1,57″) from the edge and sew again. The eyelet will be  installed between these stitches. We used Prym eyelets and washers 14 mm diameter. Here’s also a great video how to do it yourself.
