After the covers for my cake moulds I showed in my last post. I wanted also covers for things I store in the fridge. Making efforts to reduce the plastic waste I don't like to use lots of wrapping film, but still you can't store everything in open bowls, as the content might take the taste of other things in the fridge.
So I made a set of covers from oil cloth in different sizes for the bowls and cans I am using the most.
They are so easy to make. I cut out a circle that is about 5cm in diameter larger than the bowl I want to cover. I measure the elastic stretched around the bowl and sew it already in a loop. Then I sew it stretched on to the oil cloth circle from the inside keeping a 5mm distance to the edge.
I even found orange elastic that matches the oil cloth.
I remember my mom had covers like those when I had been a girl. They are washable and reusable and I don't know why they went out of fashion.
