I love these! My husband can never find the right lid to our plastic containers. I can, so I’m not sure how thoroughly he’s looking. He knows it’s a pet peeve of mine to use foil or plastic wrap when a reusable cover is available…sigh…
Anyway, I made a few of these bowl covers to add another option for the lids.
I actually made these quite some time ago. Recently, I wanted to make more and when I looked for my notes, it didn’t look like I had posted anything on Restyled Junk.
Measure across the top of your bowl and add 4 inches. This is the diameter. Using this measurement, trace a circle on paper. You can use a compass, or trace around a round object of a similar size. This is your pattern. Don’t over think it. A fraction of an inch here or there isn’t going to matter.
Cut out a fabric circle using the pattern. I like cotton fabric. It washes easily.
Get out the calculator. Multiple the original diameter of the bowl by 3.14 (Pi). Round off the obnoxious number you will probably get. Subtract two inches. Cut a piece of 1/4-inch-wide elastic using this measurement. Attach a safety pin to the elastic and thread it through the casing. Sew the elastic ends together and tuck them inside. Close the casing.
