How To Make Elastic Reusable Bowl Covers
All you’ll need is an old Bandana or piece of fabric, a measuring tape, some Polyester Elastic and a Fabric Pencil. The Blogger recommends using worn Bandanas for this project as they are softer. To begin with, place your first bowl upside down as near as possible to the center of the bandana or fabric.
Next, measure up around 2 inches from the edge of the bowl and use your Fabric Pencil to mark it off. Cut out the circle, iron it flat and sew around the edge to stop it fraying too much.

Finish off by sewing on the elastic – 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 from the photos above, they look fantastic.
