How do I make a cloth guitar cover? Answered

Hey there,

I am making someone a chamois leather guitar cover and am having problems with getting the right measurements so it doesn't look loose and sloppy as it wraps around.
Guitar covers wrap around the back body to the front, leaving open the strings and they use an elastic band to get it around and keep it snug on the guitar. Here is a link to one...


Anyone got any suggestions?

thanks so much!

i would trace the guitar onto the cloth, then add an outline that is 1 and a half times the height of the guitar, and cut a triangle section out at the bridge strap pin and at any horns(tips of cutaways) it may have. then, sew up those points and sew elastic around the edge. hope i helped.
