Make your own DIY dust cover for your Cricut Maker or any Explore machine! You won’t need much fabric OR time!
I opted to use the prepackaged fabric that Cricut sells that comes in 12″x26″ pieces. If you are using fabric you already have, you only need about 1/2 a yard for this simple project.
What you Need for your Cricut Maker Cover
- 1 – 24″x7.5″ piece
- 2 – 7.5″ x 7.5″ pieces
- 2 – 24″ x 7.5″ pieces
- Serger/sewing machine (If you’re in the market for a sewing machine I put together this little comparison for you here!)
- Cricut Maker or other Cricut Machine
- Rotary cutter
- Cutting Mat
First, I started by cutting my fabric. You will need 1 24″x7.5″ piece, 2 7.5″x7.5″ and 2 24″x7.5″ pieces. I mixed up the colors for a little bit of fun or you can just use one piece for the entire project.
Next, you will sew your 24″x7.5″ to one of the 24″ sides of the 24″x7.5″ piece. Make sure you keep the right sides together! Do the same with the other 24″x7.5″ piece.
Next, you will sew the 7.5″x7.5″ pieces to the 7.5″ side of the 24″x7.5″ piece.
Then you will sew together the 7.5″ sides to each other to complete the cube.
After I did this I also decided to serge the bottom of the cover for a cleaner look. If you don’t have a serger you can always just iron it up 1/4″ and sew a straight stitch.
That is it! Can you believe how simple that is?! If you wanted to make it more detailed and ornate you totally could, but I personally loved the simplicity of this design.
You can see a little sneak peak in the back there of the cover I made for my Cricut EasyPress as well! Stay tuned and follow along with my Instagram to see that tutorial.
