How to Sew a Toaster Cover


My mom asked me to make a toaster cover for their large 4-piece toaster. This is the finished project with video tutorial, as well as some pictures of the coordinating table runner.

My mom asked me to sew a toaster cover for her kitchen. I used this great rooster fabric that we found, and I also made a coordinating table runner. Love how these turned out. I also included a video tutorial for the project!
My mom requested a toaster cover for her four-piece toaster... the big square-ish ones. She lives with my aunt who likes to cover theirs as the cat gets on the counter and she doesn't want cat hair in it. Their kitchen is roaster-themed so she picked out this cute rooster fabric at the store, we used a coupon, and I coordinated it with this soft inner fabric that I'd gotten cheap at a local fabric yard sale. Love the two together. LOVE.

Instructions to Sew

For the toaster cover, I'm posting a link to my video tutorial below. She wrote down that her toaster is 9.1 x 12 x 12"... I added 1" to each to account for the seam allowance. Keep in mind that if your toaster isn't the same size that you'll need to adjust the sizes of your fabric.

Cut out the following:
  • 4 Pieces Inner Fabric and 4 of Outer Fabric: 13" wide x 10" tall
  • 1 Piece of Inner and 1 Piece of Outer Fabric: 13" x 13" 
Apologies if my videos are somewhat discombobulated. I often video and sew while my kids play quietly in the playroom beside me, but "quiet" is relative when you've got two boys.

I felt that this was a fairly manageable project to complete and it was actually fun. While obviously sewing neatly and cutting your fabric correctly is a big key to having a beautiful project, beautiful fabric (and thread/accessories) that coordinates well realllllllly is the biggest key in my opinion.   I'm tickled pink about how these all came out. And I am not even a big fan of roosters, but I love the colors.

Note: Someone mentioned in comments that these can be a fire hazard if you leave your toaster plugged in. ALWAYS unplug your toaster and let it cool before using this. 

Here's some photos of the toaster cover:

Flipped upside down- this is the inside.

Coordinating Table Runner

Seeing I had a little extra fabric (I think I started with 1 yard), I decided to whip her up a couple coordinating items to go with the cover. I used a few cuts of the rooster fabric to piece together with the inner red fabric... I backed it with more of the red fabric... and I made a long table runner. I also took the last remaining scrap of the rooster fabric, backed it with red fabric, and made a small square. She has a small round kitchen table that I think this would work well for so that she can put a vase or other decorative item on top of it.
