Can you believe I'm starting on a little Christmas gift stash already !
I've been whipping up some fabric bowl covers so we can use less plastic wrap.
I have seen people use shower caps as bowl covers
but they are still plastic and they look ugly !
These pretty fabric ones won't really keep your food fresh
but they will keep the flys off your food at parties .
They'd be great if you were having a themed party
as you could make these to match.
There are some covers around that require you to zig zag over elastic
and stretch and juggle as you go but that seemed a bit hard for me .
This is how I did mine ~
Cut a circle of fabric about 2" larger than your chosen bowl.
Bind all around the raw edge. Make your own or buy binding
but it needs to be wide enough to thread your elastic through .
On the underside of your bound cover in the binding make a small slit.
Use a small safety pin or bodkin and hat elastic and
thread the elastic through .
Check that it fits your bowl before tieing the elastic ends together.
Tuck the elastic knot inside the binding .
That's it , so easy !
These can be made for any size bowl and I think they're gorgeous!
Much nicer than shower caps , don't you think ?
If you make some please let me know , I'd love to see .
