If you are continually transporting your food to Pot Lucks and Parties, now you can add some charm to their presentation.
It’s time to lose the cling wrap and replace with a cuter than cute elastic reusable bowl cover. We love this awesome idea!
The Creator of those featured had a lovely set of bowls that she wanted to compliment. They have an elastic bottom, fit snuggly and they keep the nasties out.
This version is made from Bandanas. They’re machine washable, reusable and look so much better than plastic, foil or a lid. In fact, these Elastic Reusable Bowl Covers make a great gift too.

The tip for making these covers fit snugly on your bowl is to pull the elastic taut as you’re sewing it.
It’s so easy to do, doesn’t have to be too precise and as you can see above, they look fantastic.
You can use leftover scraps of Fabric to make these cute and colorful Bowl Covers. They look like an old fashioned Bonnet and do a great job of keeping your food clean and protected from bugs. We found these adorable versions on Sew4Home
