I just finished a quick project for my wife who is a very talented photographer with a variety of printers. I just threw together these dust covers. The fabric is from IKEA (which I've had for a few years) and both cover took about 3 hours to make. They came out a little snug but they work.

This is a Kodak "all-in-one"


This is a large Epson photo printer

Good idea! Never thought of making covers for my printers but I might have to give it a try  Smiley

This is such a brilliant idea!! I hate how dusty the seldom used electronics get around my house. I am going to have to swipe this idea. Yours are awesome.

I didn't use a pattern. These were custom. I just traced the sides and added 1" seam allowance, for  the top, measured the from bottom front to the back and the width. so It's Only 3 pieces total. Then I pinned it right sides in around the printer to fit and machine stitched the sides like a box. I did an overcast stitch along the hem. I hope this helps.
Best,
Dave
