Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies

1 Waterbed heater – If you don’t have one laying around (I did) they can often be found at thrift stores.


1.2 yards (38”) Aluminized cotton, commonly used for ironing board covers and available at most fabric stores.


1.2 yards (38”) any material suitable for the bottom outer layer.  I used black sweatshirt material to match the Harley towel on the front.  You actually have enough fabric for the top and bottom if that’s the look you‘re going for.


1 Harley Davidson velour towel – Check out your local flea market for unique items. This is were you make the project your own.  Other options: sports team, your favorite brew, match the room décor.


6” Velcro


 Note: The measurements provided will fit a 14”x 34” heater.  To fit any heater – measure and add 2” to the width and 4” to the length.  Be sure to purchase enough material – determined by the length of the heater plus 4”.
