I love making these super easy DIY fabric bowl covers. Ditch your cling film and replace with these super cute bowl covers. They are perfect for covering bowls with leftovers in the fridge, or for keeping flies off picnic bowls in the summer. They also make great gifts for friends and family.
Can these be used in the microwave?
Personally I have never tried – I use a plate over a bowl (to reduce plastic wrap use)
Can I use beeswax fabric or oil cloth?
I like using cotton and find this to be very effective, beeswax fabric will hold its shape over the bowl without the need for elastic. Oil cloth will work but I wouldn’t choose to line the bowl covers. Instead, I would use crimping scissors and a zig-zag stitch to secure the elastic in the underside of the bowl cover.

Pick some fun print 100% cotton fabric, you will need two layers, one for the lining and one for the top.
