Fat Quarter: Home
This simple cafetière cover uses very little fabric and is reversible, so you get two very different looks for the price of one. It makes the perfect present for those difficult-to-buy-for friends who have everything except for a designer cafetière cover.
Note: You can make the cover from one fat quarter if you use the same material for the whole project.

You Will Need
From the main fabric, cut one 4 x 14in (10 x 35.5cm) rectangle. From the contrast fabric, cut two pieces measuring 2½ x 14in (6.5 x 35.5cm). To construct the different sections of the outer fabric, arrange the main piece of fabric to form the central part, and the two contrast pieces of fabric for the top and bottom strips.
Measure the length of the tabs and cut a piece of hook-and-loop tape to fit. Stitch in place with the sewing machine.
Baking parchment is great for patterns – it’s easy to get hold of, inexpensive and translucent, which makes quick work of tracing.
How to make a bespoke cover
This cover is designed to fit a standard eight-cup vessel with a circumference of 12in (30.5cm). To make a pattern for another size of cafetière, measure the circumference and height of the beaker from just under the pouring spout to the bottom of the glass. Draw these measurements on paper and round off the four corners. Add tabs for fastening, about 1in (2.5cm) wide by 2in (5cm) long. The tabs should be positioned halfway down the centre of each opening. Add a 3/8in (1cm) seam allowance all around the pattern. Cut out and use as a template.
