Dish Covers

SMART USE 
OF
SCRAP FABRIC



Hello my dear friends, how are you all... hope enjoying
and ready for new week ...

All those who stitched always have the scrap of fabric
in which some are very favourite of yours, 
you like them so much that like to have even a little piece of it...


Today I am sharing an idea for those little pieces of your
favourite fabrics...
 

Is this looking beautiful and functional too????
Yes, you can use these little darlings to cover your
bowls and dishes in a beautiful way ...


 Some of my scrap fabrics are from 
lace, cotton and georgette ...


 Some bias tapes


 You can use any bowl which you want,
I used this for a bigger cover, marked the circle 
and cut it with 1/2" seam allowance ...


These are my four round pieces


Now attached the bias tape roundly with the edge of my lace fabric ...


 Like this ... I attached the tape all over the circle


Now close it from another side too ...
Here you can both the sides...
front and back...
I left an opening from the back side for the elastic ...
Thread your elastic in the complete bias tape piping ...


 And your little favourite pieces become adorable 
bowl covers ...


You can cover your food, fruits or anything 
you want to leave on table for someone ...
They are pretty, inexpensive and with a 
practical approach...


Aren't they cute?


Its my favourite

   
May be because of this cute bow ...

Which one is yours?
I am waiting for your responses 
and hope that you like this little fun project
And try some with new creative mind and share
with us too...

HAPPY FUN SEWING
