Cut out all the pieces in newspaper and pin them together over the object you are intending to cover.  That will tell you immediately whether or not you have given yourself enough wearing ease - if it's *exactly* the same size as the object the paper will likely simply tear and the final cover will be too tight.  If the pattern is too tight, add 3 or 4 mm to the tight bits and try again.  Once you are happy with your paper 'toile' use that as a final pattern.

On crafty makes etc. unless I'm following a pattern where the seamage given is 5/8", I generally use a 1cm seam allowance as it is the edge of your foot give or take a mm and is very easy to follow
