Pinned It, Made It! Monday

I hate using plastic wrap and decided to make some 

As I was making these, I felt like I was having deja vu--I really think I made one before but couldn't find where I blogged about it or the finished project.   I  used two pieces of cotton and since I didn't have the correct size of elastic I cut what I had in half. :-) For the pattern I pulled out a big plate and added a few inches around the side. I want to make a few with patriotic/ 4th of July material to use this summer. I think I'll try another tutorial for that one. Below are a few I had pinned but I know there are more out there!

I really like this one, it's neat and no ragged edges--if I was making one for a gift this would be great.

Here is another take on it.

I also had a pin  for making the elastic band part only ----  you could use a tea towel or whatever you had on hand to place over the bowl, I think I was looking to hard for that pin and could not find it, I know it's there somewhere.

I'm linking up with Tammy at Country Girl at Home.

These are really cute, and would absolutely be so much fun to make for the holidays! (You got me wondering if I have any patriotic fabric!) ~tina

Plastic wrap can by annoying. I like this idea and they're so colorful and pretty!

Thanks for participating in Pinned it Made it Monday!

I've seen reuseable plastic ones, but how have I not seen fabric bowl covers? Love it!
