    Thank you Graham! It took me longer to edit the video than making the covers themselves. I hope there is enough information though to inspire others to give it a try.

    Here is a video of making the dust covers. It is not meant as a detailed instruction video, but It will give you an idea of how to proceed if you know someone who sews and you want to give it a try.

    May I suggest Doug to duplicate this TIP in "Technical TIP" ("All Projectors" items for exemple)....

    Encouragements

    Thank you for the kind words Phil. It was a team effort with my daughter-in-law. I did all the measuring and gave her the basic design. She figured out how to add the pocket. If we do it again (I had some material left over)...I will change the measurements slightly so the covers fit a little tighter on the projectors. This was our first attempt so we learned a lot.

    I actually shot some video of her cutting out the material and sewing it together. I'm editing it right now and will post it in this thread shortly.

    If I could sew guys I would take orders. Custom made covers like this could be pretty expensive though. I saw toaster and appliance covers made out of quilted material costing over $80 not including shipping on Etsy. I'm sure that's more than some collectors paid for their projectors. These covers would cost more since the chalkboard fabric is a lot thicker and more difficult with which to work. This type of cover takes longer to make. However a nice-looking cover to me just makes owning these little machines so much more satisfying.

    Looks great Janice, just a thought, if it's used on projector's permanently set up then why cut the handle hole out? I would leave them as they are for better dust protection ,Mark
