Holiday Sewing, Kitchen addition

Most of my friends love to cook. I love sewing for their kitchens. This year I made cloth napkins,  cocktail napkins, placemats, shopping totes and trivets. My favorite project, however, turned out to be bowl covers.

I used a great tutorial  and made a few changes.  Instead of using fabric on both sides of the bowl covers as suggested, I used PUL (poly urethane laminate).

That way if any food, or in my case bread dough, gets stuck to the inside of the bowl cover, it's easily wiped off. Plus, if you are a bread baker, you don't want your dough to dry out while it is rising, and the PUL provides a nice barrier against food drying out. Also, since you can't really iron PUL,  I skipped the ironing steps in the tutorial and hand turned the final hem closure which worked out just fine.

 These are all machine washable, line dry. A set of three seems to be just right to cover most kitchen needs. (The largest bowl cover featured uses a fat quarter of fabric. I had some fun, retro print fabrics and they were perfect for this project). Bon appetit!
