Cute leftovers

I might not be a recycling queen but I have made many strides in making healthy and eco friendly choices in our home! I sew and use these bowl covers instead of plastic wrap.

I do still have a roll of plastic wrap but I rarely use it. They are easy to sew and you can just throw them in with the laundry.

I choose a different fabric print on each side to expand my options when accessorizing leftovers:)

Or your children can accessorize with them as mine love to do:)

You cut out two circles and sew them together with fabric facing each other. Leave a 2-3 inch opening. Turn them right side out and sew around the circle about a 1/2" from the edge. Then sew RIGHT around the edge of the circle, still leaving the 2-3" opening. Then string elastic through your opening. Pull it as taught as you prefer. Tie it in a knot and then sew the opening closed. Ta da....the first one takes the most time and then you can whip a few out in an hour! Try and it and let me know how it goes!
