Typewriter Cover Pattern

I've been promising for some time to post the pattern for the typewriter cover. After consulting with Mrs. Magic Margin she helped me make a set of instructions. Hopefully they make sense. If you have any questions please let me know and I'll forward the questions over to her.

If you happen to make one or have one made we would love to see the results. You can email your pictures to In case you haven't seen the examples we made I've included pictures below. The black and white one does not have any interfacing.


  1. Looks quite easy. I wonder if I should try this for my Optima Elite, the one of my big machines that doesn't own such a cover.

  2. Wow, they turned out great! I'm gonna have to take a crack at making one myself. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. These are very cool, but should be called typewriter COSIES! ;)

  4. Thank you for the pattern. My Royal HH and IBM Selectric now have covers, and are much happier for it!

  5. Thank you for the pattern. I made one the other day and it turned out great. I tried to email you but the address above bounced back. Here is a link to my finished project.

    Thanks again for the great pattern.

  6. Thank you for the pattern. My cousin is an aspiring author and loves her typewriter but didn't want an ugly plastic one. She sent me here and this is what I made for her.
    oops, tried to add a picture but it wouldn't let me.
    Well, thanks for the pattern!
