Enter Sew Much Ado with her Reusable Swiffer Sweeper Cover Tutorial. Brilliant! It was so easy, a picture with every step, and I made 2 in about 20 minutes - using materials that I had on hand.
I did make a few *minor* changes:
- She used an old chenille sock for the sweeper part, but I didn't have a sock to donate to this project, so I just used some terry cloth I had in my fabric stash. Worked just as well.
- For the stretchy part on top, she used an old tshirt, but again I didn't have one I wanted to cut up so I used some knit from the stash. Note: if you use a 2-way stretch knit instead of a 4-way stretch, make sure the fabric stretches lengthwise so it gets around the sweeper.
- MEASURE YOUR SWIFFER! Her measurements were not the same for my swiffer. It turned out ok, as my knit is really stretchy, but it would have been easier to add an extra 1/2 inch in length.
