I would say measure your keg, and then sew up a cylinder (open ended on both sides) with maybe some elastic around the top end to draw it closed a bit? Or even a bit of a drawstring? It looks pretty open on top. I wouldn’t over complicated it any more than that.

ETA – This would actually be a really quick project with big impact! Good find!

It looks kind of like a pillowcase to me.

@mcnetn3: That’s what I was thinking. Almost like sewing a big bolster pillow. Really, just three lines of stitching. Each end and then down the middle. Done.

@cllyons: It’s bridal brain. You automatically assume or try to make things more complicated than they are 😉

We did this at a party! We used a laundry bag from target, because it had a flat bottom and a cinch top already built in.

but frankly it looks darned easy to make

Measure around the keg,

Cut a piece of fabric long enough and wide enough- add a few inches for hem

Fold wrong sides together and stitch seam.

Fold down from top and bottom  x 2 to make a tube where you can insert a drawstring.

Slip it over the keg and draw up the string to gather the top.

@cllyons: I had so many of them left over after and I didn’t realize it until a couple weeks ago when I was digging through boxes trying to sort out what to keep, what to sell and I found them. Unfortunately I think they got damp during the evening (it poured rain during dinner) and most of them got mouldy in the box (there was another box that was okay)! Bollocks! I could have sold the leftovers otherwise! Why do we choose to get so fixated on ridiculous things?!
