How to Make a Grill Cover?

this video is brought to you by sailrite
in this video we’re going to be showing
you how to make a grill cover after
watching this video you’ll actually be
able to make your own grill cover that’s
actually made for the shape of your
grill no more of these cookie cutter
grill covers that are made of inferior
fabrics from the department store do it
yourself and make a better cover and
save angela from the sailrite loft is
going to show us how it’s done
here’s a sneak peak of the panels that
will need to be created for our grill
you can see here these that are circled
are the same on the other side same size
at least for our grill for our grill we
need 7 panels but we only need 2 pattern
for one and measure for 3 we’re going to
begin by patterning the lid on the
opposite side it’s the same shape so we
only need one pattern for this for all
the other panels we’re going to use
measurements instead of patterning here
we’re using dura Skrim pattern material
that you can purchase from sailrite and
we’ve cut a piece of it so that it
matches the lid on the side and we’re
using a sharpie marker and marking on
that pattern material around the
perimeter of the grill following the
contour along the bottom lip of the
pattern material you’ll notice there’s
approximately one inch of extra pattern
material we’ll be using that for the
seam allowance
now angela strikes a line approximately
1 inch from that line she did earlier
and this will be used for the seam
allowance we’ll probably not use an
entire inch for seam allowance because
we want the cover to be a little bit
loose we don’t want it super tight
that’s why it’s a 1 inch seam allowance
though we’ll probably only use a 1/2
inch of it when we sew it together now
that the lid side is done we can
concentrate on the middle panel this is
a look at the middle panel the front
side and here’s the back side there’s no
need to pattern anymore now we can just
take measurements we’re using a tape
measure here draping it over the lid of
the grill all the way to the floor and
notice there’s about six inches of
excess tape laying on the floor that
will be used for a sleeve later on go
over the top of the grill to the back
side and there on the backside there’s
also six inches of tape laying on the
floor and as well that’ll be used for
the sleeve for this middle panel we’ll
measure across the lid from one end to
the opposite and here you can see it’s
about 29 inches we want to add one inch
to that so 30 inches for our grill that
completes the measurements for the
middle panel write those measurements
down now we’ll concentrate on the table
panel this is the panel that lays across
the tables on the sides the same
procedure will be used to take
measurements for this table panel we’ll
go over the table down to the floor
along the front and leave six inches of
tape on the floor then going over the
table to the backside we’ll leave six
inches of tape there as well which gives
us a measurement of 101 inches for our
grille then we’ll take a measurement
from the lid all the way to the end of
the table it’s about 14 inches we want
to add one inch so 15 inches now let’s
verify that the table is exactly the
same on the opposite end and it is it’s
about 14 inches so 15 inches exactly the
same so we’ll need two table panels but
they’re exactly the same size only one
more measurement to take and that’s for
the table end well again we’ll just take
measurements here as well measure from
the top of the table down to the floor
and add six inches just as we did
previously for ours it’s 40 inches then
we’ll measure across the width of the
table it’s 19 inches and we’ll add one
inch making it 20 inches for our table
okay after measuring and patterning one
panel we’re ready we can cut out our
panels here’s a look ahead at the panels
after they’ve been cut out notice there
are seven panels three of them are
exactly the same
before we start cutting the panels we
want to show you the possible most
optimal way to lay the panels for best
cloth usage now for all grills this
won’t always be the same we’re using a
60 inch fabric but your grill may be
larger and you may have to nest
differently and chose using a number-two
pencil some rulers and yard sticks and
marking on the fabric to determine the
size of each one of those panels we’re
using Asher last fabric which is a
polyester fabric and there is a right
side and a wrong side on the back side
there’s a urethane coating so notice
that actually will patterns this lid
panel she flipped the panel to do the
opposite one that’s because we have to
make sure that we have the long side on
the inside of the grill when we’re done
this material can be cut out with
scissors though a hot knife can also be
used to help prevent the unraveling of
the fabric though unraveling is minimal
after the panels have been cut out
here’s a look ahead the middle panel the
two table panels the two table ends and
the two lid sides in this shot you can
see the panels that have been roughly
organized to show how they will be
assembled we’re going to go back to the
grill and take one more measurement this
will determine where the lid side will
be sewn onto the main body so she’s
measuring from the top of the table all
the way to the floor and adding six
inches as she did previously and there
we are at 41 inches is where we want the
lid panel to be joined to the main body
on the main body panel she measures up
from that edge 41 inches and places a
mark on both sides she’s marking on the
outside surface of this sure last fabric
now she’s going to take the side lids or
the lid sides and she’s going to
position them roughly how they would be
sewn on she’ll start at that mark she
placed and notice galibi soin that’s an
imitation of how they’ll be sewing so
she takes a second panel lays it so that
the outside surfaces are facing each
other you can see that urethane coating
by the darker gray
now she takes to the sewing machine and
prepares to sew we’re sewing this on the
sailrite 111 sewing machine with the
mc-scr power system and notice we’re
using the deluxe magnetic guide as a
kind of like a table saw fence to help
guide the fabric she is positioning the
lid side and rolling it around so that
the edges of the lid side are even with
the edge of the main body panel sewing
across the top she comes to the next
corner matching up those edges she’ll
bury her needle watch by rolling the
bounce wheel by hand there it is now she
can make very aggressive changes to the
fabric without losing your position and
then she pulls the fabric there the lid
panel all the way over to the edge of
the main body panel matching up those
edges all the way down to the bottom
edge and here she’ll stop sewing and
reverse to lock the stitch in place okay
there’s one side panel now we just have
to do the same to the opposite we need
the outside surfaces to be facing each
other as they are she flips the entire
main body panel she’s going to sew this
so that the lid panel or the lid side is
on the bottom side and the main body
panel is on the top side so here she
starts sewing right where that lid panel
starts and she’ll sew down it the exact
same way she did with the opposite side
except for that this main body panel is
on top that’s the only difference so
will not show all this before we go I
want to mention that if you do not have
the deluxe magnetic guide you could use
masking tape as a guide and tape that to
the bed of your sewing machine however I
highly recommend the deluxe magnetic
guide available from sailrite
all right now the two lids sides are
sewing on to the main body panel
next we’ll take the two table panels and
we’ll sew those on to the edges of the
main body panel the outside surfaces are
facing each other here and we’ll start
at that corner and sew a half inch away
from the raw edge and again we’re using
the deluxe magnetic guide when we get to
the portion where the lid is notice what
Angela does here here’s the lid where it
starts and she’s going to follow the
edge of the lid here so she’s going to
take a slight turn she buries her needle
with the balance wheel makes adjustments
to the fabric
so the lid edge is now what she’s
following and then continues to sew
now she’s coming to where the lid ends
and watch what she does here as well
comes to the junction of the main body
panel berries our needle with the
balance wheel makes major adjustments
rolling that fabric around so the edges
are flush pulls that panel on top and
then continues to sell now when you get
to the end don’t be alarmed if you have
a few extra inches of fabric that are
longer than the other panel here you can
see we have about two and a half inches
of excess fabric that’s often the case
mainly due to the fact that our
measuring wasn’t extremely precise and
also there’s some shrinkage that
sometimes happens so that’s okay now
shall turn that whole main body panel
over and sew the opposite side just as
we did with the previous though this the
side or the table panel is on the bottom
side and the main body panel is on the
top side here she’s coming to that
junction where the lid was sewing under
the main body panel and she follows the
same procedure as she did on the
opposite will not show all of this
because we’re just doing the same thing
with those panels that we did on the
other one except for the fact that the
main body panel is on the top side this
time remember to always have the right
side of the fabric facing each other and
here at the end you can see we’re about
an inch off that’s completely acceptable
do some reversing to lock the stitch in
place now we have the two table panels
attached
now we’ll concentrate on the table ends
we’ll lay out the main body panel so
that we can see where the lid panel has
been sewing on and then we’ll place that
table in so that it’s centered between
the lid side and it may be a different
size then mark it with a pencil along
the table panel so that we can determine
where it should be sewing on then we’ll
place the table end panel underneath
that main body panel so the outside
surfaces are facing each other we’re
going to be sewing that on to the table
panel we’ll start a inch back from the
edge of that panel though it doesn’t
look like it here in the video we are
sewing an inch back from that corner
that’s because we will need to sew the
opposite side in a later step and
leaving an inch like this is important
to sew the opposite in so now we sew
down its length matching up the edges as
done previously
all the way down its length when we get
to the corner of the table end that’s
the panel underneath angela will bury
her needle and then she’ll pull that
table end panel around matching up the
edges notice the needles buried so we
don’t lose our position she pulls that
panel around and then sews down that
edge matching up the main body panel
which is on top
when we get to the end you’ll notice
it’s not extra flush it’s off by an inch
or so that’s okay even if it’s up to two
to three inches it’s okay now we’re
going to flip that entire panel around
and concentrate on finishing the table
end and sewing it on here’s where we
left that inch on sewing so she starts
there and then continues to stow to the
corner buries our needle holes the end
panel around so the edges are flush and
sews down its length as well
skipping ahead to the end notice that
we’re a couple inches off here as well
no big deal
we’ll be trimming that later all right
we want to repeat that same procedure
for the opposite side this is that same
clip but the procedure is exactly the
same and we’ll start sewing and inch
away from that corner just as we did
previously and we’re going to skip ahead
no reason to show all of this because
you just completed it and we don’t want
to bore you everything is now someone
together now we can trim that bottom
edge this is the edge that will have a
sleeve inserted so that we can install a
shock cord notice she starts at each one
of the seams and she trims off the
excess to the next scene so start where
it’s overlapped and trim to the corner
don’t need to be extremely precise here
because we don’t want the cover to
necessarily touch the floor but we want
to cover the entire grille you can take
some measurements if you’d like to
confirm that it’s going to be long
enough or not too long but we’re pretty
confident that it’s going to fit right
so we’re not going to take measurements
if you’d like to you can take some
measurements and then decide how much
you should trim off if you like this is
the forward edge we’re going to follow
that seam down and install two grommets
so that we can make adjustments near the
front of the cover these two grommets
will be placed on opposite sides of the
seam approximately three inches up from
the raw edge of the fabric and this is
where the shock cord will be tensioned
around the entire perimeter of the cover
because a grommet should usually go
through more than one layer of fabric
we’re going to cut some squares out of
the scrap fabric so we’re just cutting a
few squares and we’re applying
double-sided tape to those we’re only
going to do one square per grommet
however two is probably a good idea so
the grommet goes through three layers
then we’ll base them right over the area
that we’re going to install the grommet
in
we’ll now place the premium cutting
block on the underside to prevent damage
from the hole cutter and we’re using a
numbered 0 hole cutter that you can
purchase from sailrite or you can just
cut an X with a razor blade here to
allow the male portion of the grommet to
protrude through the hole we’re using
number 0 spur grommets these grommets
have teeth and are a little bit tougher
than a common washer or a plain washer
grommet however because this aeration
doesn’t call for a lot of strength a
common washer or plain grommet washer
can be used as well
they’re less expensive
now that the grommets have been
installed we’re going to create our
sleeve for the shock cord first we’re
going to run double-sided tape around
the entire perimeter the bottom edge of
the grill cover this double-sided tape
is great because it helps to hold place
hold seams and hold fabric in place
while you take it to the sewing machine
and so now we’re going to insert our
shock cord through when the grommet
holes with the knot on the outside of
the cover and then we’ll run the shock
cord around the perimeter of the cover
as we create our sleeve we’ll peel off
the transfer paper within the glue and
then we’ll fold the material up just a
little bit over that grommet that we
installed earlier and we’ll try to
consistently fold it around the entire
perimeter that same distance inserting
the shock cord in the sleeve as we fold
the material
all right we skipped ahead here to the
end and we want to cut the shock cord
insert it into the grommet and then tie
a knot on the end of that to keep it in
place so that doesn’t fall out first we
need to stick that sleeve down with that
double-sided tape now we’ll take it over
to the sewing machine and watch here
she’s going to actually fold the
material so the grommets are very close
to the folded edge at the bottom so it’s
not going to be a single folded hymn or
sleeve it’s going to be a double folded
him or sleeve
so she’s folds the material as she sews
it she’s going to start here reversing a
little bit and then she’s going to fold
the material about two foot away from
the needle ensuring that it is folded
accurately the way that she wants it and
then shows sew up to that two foot area
where fingers or her hand is holding the
fabric in place and then she’ll hold
another section of fabric back at two
foot away from the sewing machine watch
the process
okay she’s almost her hand she stopped
sewing the needles buried now she makes
a fold again about two foot away and
she’ll hold that with her hand and sew
up to her hand yet again repeat that
process all the way around the perimeter
oh and also be sure not to sew in the
shock cord the shock cord should be into
the fold on the outer portion of the
cover do not sew the shock cord in make
sure that it’s in the sleeve free to
move here’s what the outside looks like
looks great and here we’re coming to the
point where we started and we’ll reverse
to lock the stitch in place there as
well you are done sewing we’re going to
take this to the cover and tension the
shock cord but we wanted to show you how
easy it is to cut it with a hot knife to
help prevent the shock cord from
unraveling as it is on the ends if you
don’t have the sailrite edge hotknife
you could use a wood-burning tool a
soldering gun or a lighter be careful
that things don’t catch fire if you use
those tools now let’s see how it fits on
the grill we have not yet tension the
bottom sleeve yet we’ll do that first
thing once it’s tensioned it can be
tensioned for its lifetime or it can be
readjusted if it ever becomes loose so
once it’s tensioned it should be easy to
remove it and to reinstall it again
without having to pre tension it or
release the tension here where the shock
cord exits the cover
she’s tensioning the shock cord there’ll
be a lot of bunched up fabric here but
she’ll distribute that after she gets
the shock cord tension to the
appropriate amount and then she ties a
knot here this will basically be a
permanent knot we’re not going to show
cutting it with a hot knife though we do
recommend doing that once you’ve
determined how tight you want your cover
to fit we’re going to cut it with
scissors
now she’ll take that ruffle and
distribute it evenly around the entire
perimeter of the cover here it is
complete notice that the cover is not
too snug it’s still easy to remove and
install and you can see the Angela
that now the nice thing about making
your own grill cover is the fabric you
purchase it’s much more superior than
those cheap covers that you can get at a
department store it’s time to get
cooking

Nexgrill Cover Buyers’ Guide

What size cover for Nexgrill 6-burner?

The dimensions for a Nexgrill 6-burner grill cover are 45H x 60W x 25D. A grill is made to last a long time but must be protected against possible damage. A cover should be dirt, water, and UV-resistant as it will be used during all types of weather conditions. It should be very water-resistant as moisture from rain can cause damage and rust. A Nexgrill cover should also be lightweight so the installation and removal processes can be easy and not too time-consuming. The mesh vent inside Nexgrill covers allow breathing of the grill and encourage airflow in order to avoid any molding or mildew growth. They are also made from 300D stock-dyed polyester with double-stitched seams so they are sure to be very durable and last a long time.

What size BBQ cover fits a Nexgrill 5-burner with a side burner?

To cover a Nexgrill 5-burner with a side burner, you will need a BBQ cover with the same size as you will need for a 6-burner grill. The BBQ cover must be super resistant to all types of possible damage-causing agents such as UV rays, heat, and water. It must also be thick and made from a material that is highly durable such as polyester or commercial vinyl, in order to last a long time. The cover should also have some sort of elastic hem that will provide a secure fit, and will not be blown off during high winds or heavy weather. Breathability and airflow are also required in order to prevent any growth of mold or mildew, which may harm the grill.
