Step 1: Gathering materials
•The finished sword - the blade needs to be completely dry and done. I suggest also finishing the pommel and any other glueing so you don't get dap on the cover, but you can wait until the cover is done to wrap the handle in any rope/ athletic tape/ etc.
•Fabric - something sturdy that will not fray easily, I suggest trigger or duck cloth.
•A sewing machine
Step 2: Laying out the fabric
Put the sword on the fabric and adjust it until there is enough fabric hanging over the edge of the sword to touch the rest of the fabric on the other side. I put some brown felt under my fabric so you can see how far I've pulled it over.
