1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / CPAP cover tutorial on: January 12, 2014 06:12:59 PM
My husband needs a CPAP machine and the latex head piece irritates his skin.  So I have been making him covers and I thought I'd share in case it helps anyone else.

You'll need:
Sewing machine & thread
Buttonhole foot
Scissors
Soft material (I used flannel or terry cloth)
Button the size of the plugs
Paper & pen/marker



All of these steps you'll do twice since there are two, I recommended doing both together

First I took off the head piece and traced it onto paper


Then I cut it in half, folded the fabric in half and pinned it to the fabric and cut about 1/2 inch around


Unpin, unfold and line up with head piece.  On one side mark in the center of the fabric where the plugs that snap into the mask.  Make a line.


Put your sewing machine on the buttonhole setting, use the button that is a similar size to the plugs for the buttonhole foot and sew over your mark.


Then fold the piece over and sew around the edges leaving the bottom open ( you can skip sewing around the top because you have a fold there.


Turn inside out and slide onto the headpiece with the buttonholes opening for the plugs


Your done, now it's time to snap the plugs into the mask and have a good sleep!

That owl pillow and penguin are super cute.  So sorry the doxie didn't make it (stinky postal service!!)

And I adore that octopi- the necklace and especially the stuffie- beyond cute!!

Everything in here is so super cute.  Love it all (especially my lemur!)

OMG!! that fox scarf is a-dor-a-ble.  Want!!  I love the shark and owl bag too.  You're very talented Robbin Zombie!

And forgot to add, PJ, I got my jaguar in the tree- it's so cute and small and fits in my little curio of cute cabinet!  Even my grumpy husband was smitten with it! Smiley

Glad you like the 'foxy bag' and zebra.   I just got your package this morning and I'm blown away- you've got some serious talent!!!  I will post pictures this evening or tomorrow morning.  The awesome-est package ever, it really brightened my day!  Smiley

Awesome packages!!

I love the pink elephant and that tarsier hoopla is amazing- I love that you used the leaf print fabric!  Very nice.

It's funny you both used the shark print, I guess it's true that great minds think alike!   The manatee purse and polar bear are really nice too!

The Pangolin backpack is amazing!!  And the tapir hoop it awesome.

That moose is too cute.  And I sooooo want that spider monkey,

I sent out my package on Friday and now I'm afraid it doesn't compare to all this awesomeness!
