How to Sew Round Ends: Wood Pellet Grill Chimney Cover
This is a companion blog to our “How to Make a Grill Cover for a Wood Pellet Grill” blog (300227XHT). You’ll want to read that blog first and watch that video before this one. If your pellet grill has a chimney, you’ll need to sew a separate piece of tubular material to cover the chimney that you can then sew to the main grill cover. We created a square base on our tubular chimney cover so that it could easily be sewn to the main chimney cover.
In this quick how-to video, we’ll show you how to measure the chimney and calculate how much fabric you’ll need. We even show you a handy trick for sewing a semi-flat felled seam on a tubular piece of material for a professional-looking seam. Other sewing techniques include how to sew a round piece of fabric to the top of a tubular body, and how to remove a circle from the square base to fit the tubular piece. And we’ll walk you through calculating your seam allowances for each piece of fabric needed for this chimney cover project.
