Keep Insects Away in Style!
These charming fabric bowl covers are perfect for potlucks and picnics. They easily slip off and on and keep insects away from the food.
Plus, they’re super easy to make and can be customized to fit any bowl. An elastic casing holds the covers in place.
They’ll work for jars and other containers, as well. Just adjust the size to fit.
Quilting cotton is a pretty choice but a laminated fabric will also work, as long as it’s quite flexible. Or, consider applying a fusible vinyl to the back of the fabric so the cover repels moisture.
Lindsay Wilkes from The Cottage Mama has provided a great tutorial. Be sure to look through the comments for other moisture-proofing suggestions.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
