Ingredients

  • 4

    7″x7″ pieces flannel (or microfiber cloth)

  • 4

    4″x7″ pieces flannel (or microfiber cloth)

  • sturdy thread

  • Swiffer duster handle

  • sewing machine

  • pen for tracing

Directions

1. Place two pieces of 4″x7″ flannel on two pieces of 7″x7″ flannel, centering smaller pieces on top. Repeat with remaining flannel squares. 2. Join small and large pieces together by stitching down center of all four layers of fabric. Stack the two sets of flannel on top of each other, with the small pieces on the top and bottom. Next, make the casing for the Swiffer duster handle. 3. Fold the small pieces of fabric to one side, align the base of the prongs at the edge of the fabric, and center the prongs over the middle seam where the small and large pieces were joined together. 4. Trace close to side edge of prong all the way to the edge of fabric, leaving spaces where the curved areas of the prongs are. It is better to leave a little extra space where the curved areas are than to leave too little space. Fold small piece of fabric to opposite side and trace prongs again the same way. 5. Fold top and bottom small pieces to one side and stitch along traced lines, through all four layers of flannel. 6. Fold top and bottom small pieces to opposite side and stitch along traced lines, through all four layers of flannel. 7. Open up top and bottom small pieces at middle seams and lay flat. Slide Swiffer duster handle into the casing you have sewn, in between the 4 large pieces of flannel. Curved areas on prongs should slide into the spaces you left when you stitched the casing in step 6 and hold the handle in place. 8. Beginning with top layer of large flannel piece, trim approximately 1″ of fabric from edge on both sides. 9. Continue trimming each layer approximately 1″ shorter than the layer beneath it. 10. Turn duster cloth over and repeat steps 8-9 with opposite side. 11. Beginning with narrowest layer, clip edges of flannel at 1/2″ intervals along length of duster. 12. Repeat with the next flannel layer beneath. 13. Continue clipping edges of all layers on each side of duster cloth. 14. Ruffle up all clipped edges. 15. Throw your new reusable Swiffer duster cloth in the washer and dryer to let the edges fray. You may need to clip some loose or dangling strands of thread.
