How to sew a simple outdoor cover for a fire pit and other patio accessories

I was browsing through the Canadian Tire website looking for a fire pit to replace my old one when I found this:

The design and shape caught my eye as there is something alluring about flames in a box. My old fire pit was more conventional. Circular with a basic lid. It lasted me four season before it completely rusted into a pile of metal. I blame myself for buying a cheap fire pit, but also for storing it poorly over the cold months…and by saying that I actually mean not storing it at all. I left it out to the elements without so much as a basic cover to drape over to prevent the onset of rust.

A basic cover for most of these generic brand fire pits is virtually never included. So, I decided to make my own.

I measured the sides in inches with a measuring tape.

I took notice of the pyramid-like shape to taper off the top of the box shape.

Using my serger, I attached all 4 pieces together.

To finish I attached a 13 x 13 inch square top to enclose the piece.

Now I have a simple cover for my fire pit. These steps can be applied to many other patio accessories.
