    Hello all, I'm wondering if someone out there might have a simple and FREE upright vacuum cleaner cover pattern??
    I found one resource online -a Simplicity pattern S8177- that I would have to travel 15 miles to get, if they even have it at JoAnn's. (I'd phone first, but the store has maybe two gals on the floor... pitiful.)

    I sure could use the extra room in the closet for this ol' KIrby monstrosity and hiding it "under cover" is my only option. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    I made mine into a housemaid with dress & apron. She needed shoulder pads for the dress to fit & not droop. The handle is inside the bear's body.

    There's batting all around the hold where the handle of the vacuum goes. You would make a sleeve that loosely fits the upright vacuum handle. It goes inside the doll upper body, with stuffing around it. (My MIL gave me a cat vacuum cover.)

    Thanks will have to give this a go, I take it the dress comes off so it can be washed.

    The whole thing can be thrown in the washer. Doll, dress, and all. On mine, it is all sewn together, so that even if you see a pinafore, it's sewn to the body.

    I have a similar doll I have to do. My DD had a 3' tall doll made from 3 baskets with a doll head on it, that was lost in a hurricane when our home was destroyed. Her vacuum cover was found, but the vacuum is destroyed. The doll is very similar to a vacuum cover, but has a little less of the body stuffed.
