If you’re the type of person who owns a television, but only uses it semi-regularly, you could do worse than covering up with this tv test pattern slip-over cover.
The cover itself was a matter of measuring the television — approximately 19″ wide, 13″ high and 4″ deep. I cut out five pieces of felt — two 20″ x 14″ pieces for the front and back, two 4″ x 14″ pieces for the sides, and one 4″ x 20″ piece for the top. Before I could sew the cover together, however, I first had to attach the test pattern to the front panel. I did this by first sewing the test pattern piece directly onto the front panel with a straight stitch. Then, I went back and sewed around the edges with a zig-zag stitch. Inspiration struck before I started to sew the cover pieces together; I decided to add pockets to the back panel. One pocket is sized for the remote control and the other for Netflix envelopes.
