Step #1:
Measure the height and width of your crate. Figure out how much fabric you need.

Step #2:
With measurements in hand, sew your fabric. Since we were using felt sheets, we sewed each sheet together to form one long strip the width of the crate.Easier yet, buy one solid piece of fabric!

Add a hem to fit the crate’s height.
