Supplies

Paper (pattern)

Fabric

Elastic    ( 1/4 inch )

Sewing machine & supplies

 

Trace your favorite Bowl – Top side Down -and add about 1 to 2 inches. This will make your pattern. I used cotton fabric -but you could use a lite vinyl-  cut with pink a shear around your pattern Then sew around the circle -while folding down the edge to make a casing for the elastic to go through. When finish sewing -thread elastic through-pull to tighten,  Finish off. 

These little cover will keep the  Kitties from eating your food. Make them big or small have fun.

 

Next Project can be made any size –  Mom – the Bowl is too Hot to carry.  Yes- I here that all the time when they take out items from the microwave and try to take them to the table.  So here’s my version of a handy holder. Lisa

Supplies-

Cotton fabric  ( I used Halloween fabric /orange)

Batting  ( if using in microwave non synthetic)

Basic Sewing Supplies and Machine

 

 

 

 

 

I used a common bowl for size.   – Cut 2 10 x10 square of fabric & batting. Sew the 2 fabric pieces right sides together -leaving whole for turning and Add batting. Sew -top to bottom and diagonal. In the middle sew in circle to make a base for the bowl to sit.

**These  are handy potholders to use to get items from microwave to the table  If you want to use in microwave  with your item – be selective of materials you use. Only use cotton fabric -/  batting all others will burn or melt.
