Preparing your Round / Oval Pouch Cover:

1. Take a clean pouch and place it with back facing out on a flat service. Fold sides of pouch toward center. Take a measuring tape/rule and measure from the center of the hole to outside flange edge. For a Hollister 8612 it measures 1 1/2” or 3” across.
2. Take a pen and mark a dot in the center of the pouch cover. Measure from the center of the new pouch cover out to the measurement you had in step 1. Place another dot.
3. The mark should be on the inside of a sewing line. Cut close but do not cut into the sewing line on the right side of your outside mark. The cover should be a little smaller than your flange. This is to insure a snug fit.

Wearing Instructions:

1. Once you have cut your new pouch cover to fit, gather the end of your pouch and insert it into the back of the opening in the cover.
2. Slide the cover up and over the pouch as if putting on a slip cover. Remember it should be snug.
3. Insure that all edges of the pouch is inside the pouch cover. Do not disturb the part of your pouch that sticks to your skin. You do not want to break the seal.
4. Smooth down the front and enjoy your new cover.
