This is not a cover for fabric, this is a cover made of fabric. However, I suppose you could cover fabric with it if you want to.

This is simply a method of turning a black and white digital image into a large heart-shaped fabric throw that can be made of any two fabrics of your chosing.

I made mine for use with the Inflatable Love seat.

Step 1: Go get stuff


- A computer with Photoshop
- A black and white printer
- 60 sheets of paper (give or take)
- Scissors
- Masking tape
- Tracing Paper
- 200 beaded pins
- Thread (to match fabric)
- Fabric for foreground color (as large as you want to make your heart)
- Fabric for background color (as large as you want to make your heart)
- A sewing machine
- A sewing needle
- Photoshop file (see below)

I have just read the inflatable love seat instructable before finishing this one, and I gotta say: bravo! how long did it take for you to finish the whole thing? the cover and the ILS? I'm no expert in sewing so I would imagine that my version is going to take weeks! :D
Thanks! Two weeks intensive labor. I barely knew how to sew before I started this. It was a learning process. The cover was a nightmare. If I had to do it again, I would baste the fabric.
dude this is awesome! what material did you use? the red and black material?
it looks like crushed velvet to me.
WOW! That looks like a LOT of work. It looks great too.
