Shwe-shwe fabric. The more the fabric is washed the softer it becomes. It is incredibly durable, which means it will last a long time.

1. Measure the length of the tube and the circumference of the pipe/circle.
2. One need a zipper, thread and wash away tape. Two layers of fabric, one for the outside and one
for the lining on the inside of the tube. Two squares of scrap batting for the top and the bottom of
the tube. Make two quilted circles, this will be the top and the bottom caps of the tube.
3. Fabric for a label, would recommend making it and stitching it on, before creating the round tube,
much easier to sew on.
Next use these pieces and sew the zipper to these pieces of fabric. Then do the same to the longer rectangles. Instead of pins use the wash away tape to keep the zipper and fabric in place while inserting the zipper. This replace the use of pins and keep the zipper in place.
Then pull it over the plastic tube, do not turn it inside out yet. Mark two inches above the zipper and trim excess fabric. now attach the cap by hand with a tacking stitch. Remove the tube and sew the cover on the sewing machine.
A Father's Day gift made with all the love and patience in the world.
The label was sewn on the outside, with his name and a contact number which is under the handle of tube. So if it got lost at the airport, the staff could contact him.
