Making the casserole dish cover (mine measures 12” x 8 ½”)

Cut two pieces 14 ½” x 11” and one piece of interfacing 14 ½” x 11”

Fuse wrong side of fabric to either side of the interfacing

Mark two-inch lines in both directions on the top fabric, and quilt along these lines.

Sew bias binding (in either cream or green) to the top of the dish cover, creating neat right-angled triangles on the corners.

Hand sew to reverse, leaving a 2” gap for threading the elastic cord through.

Attach a safety pin to one end of the elastic, and thread though bias binding.

Pull elastic tightish and secure with a knot, close the gap in the binding to complete your casserole dish cover.

Making the cereal bowl cover (suitable for 17” to 20” circumference)

Cut two 8” circles and one 8” circle from interfacing.

Repeat process above.

When adding bias binding sew slowly and neatly around curved edge.

Great for keeping the flies off your food, and still looking gorgeous in your kitchen.
