Today I would like to share a couple of quick sewing project I have been working on- Both of these will make great gifts this holiday !
I call this – Cat Keeper Offer – my kitties have a bad habit of trying to eat out of food bowl .Bad Kitties!
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
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.
