Got this link from a quilter friend from California on Facebook. Thought I'd share it....I don't have a Swiffer, but might get one if I can make my own covers.....I just had a thing about having to buy throw away covers...lol.

Wow - I printed that out - thanks. I'm going to make 2 or 3 as I like my swiffer wet & these look washable.

Jessie, where are you... this looks like a good thing for you to sell with all your other products you make... Here is another one for knitters ... I think this could be incorporated with crocheting too... Kitchen scrubbies http://berlinswhimsy.typepad.com/Knitted%20Dish%20Scrubbie.pdf this is a nice site... thanks TMM

I'm gonna print this one out too. The house we're hoping to get has hardwood floors that a swiffer would work great on! I, too, don't like throwing things away that I could wash and reuse either. Thanks TMM.

There was another comment today on the pattern.....couldn't make this one out tho...anyone figure it out? scratch

I saw another one that's even easier. You take a piece of fleece, the same size as the swiffer cloths, sew 4, one inch strips to it (down the middle of each strip so it has a flap effect) and then attach it to the swiffer mop the same way you would the disposable ones. Haven't tried it but it looked like it would pick up more dirt because of the strips increase in surface area.

After looking at this pattern, wouldn't it be just as easy to cut out a piece of terry cloth larger by about 2" then sewing a piece of fleece the size of the swiffer onto that, then make a casing, insert a piece of cording and draw it up and tie it? It would be just as easy to take on and off to wash.

COMMENTS PLEASE!
