My First Amp Cover

 

Hello Everyone,

I finally completed my first amp cover for one of E's amps.

E measured the amp he wanted a cover for, cut out the template using the tweed fabric we got him and I went to work. I then sewed on one of the Fender patches that I got him as a stocking stuffer this Christmas.


We will have to tweak the design a little bit, but, I'm happy with how it turned out and E is definitely happy with it. He has already started designing the next amp cover for him for another amp.

Have a great weekend!!

I'm linking up at these parties & TCB

  2. Alisha, I was just on pinterest and saw you were following. I jumped over to your boards and followed you as well. I like your style! I was trying to see if you had a blog to follow but I couldnt find it. I decided to check my email and there you were with a link to your blog. Crazy right! Wish I knew how to sew. I've tried but I get so frustrated. Perfectionist comes out in a ugly way. Maybe its becuase I have a hand me down machine. Anyway, glad you stopped by! I look forward to getting to know you better and seeing your new posts. Jamie

  9. Thanks for stopping by : ) My husband plays guitar...I would make him one, but he's always trading his amp for different ones on craigslist... I'll just have to wait until he's happy with one, lol. I guess that's just how musicians are : )

  11. You have inspired me to make some covers for the amps in our house. I am sure they will be less dusty (road construction behind our house) with them covered up. Thanks for sharing!

  19. I'm so glad you stopped by to say hi! My husband used to play the bass guitar in a band and now his amp sits up in our attic. we'll be moving soon and I know he wants to start playing again. I have a feeling it will make another appearance soon. So, I will definitely be trying this one out. Awesome work!!!

    Happily following you :-)
