DIY (246) – Fabric recycling: fabric covers for containers

Hi everyone!!!!

Today we’re talking about fabric recycling!

In a few minutes you can prepare these fabric lids for your containers. I prefer the use of cotton, especially if the containers are to be used for food.

Comfortable, practical, you can use them thousands of times since you can wash them.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 246



fabric – needle and thread – elastic (1 cm) – pencil or fabric marking pen

This is a very easy project to do.

First take the container for which you want to create your lid.

Place it on the wrong side of the fabric and draw with a pencil the shape of the container (with a margin of at least 10 cm).

Fold the edge (about 1 cm and 1/2) and sew it, leaving a small piece open at the end so you can insert your elastic.

To know how much elastic you will need, I recommend you to place the fabric on top of your container before sewing the edge.

Depending on the edge, choose the size of the elastic (which should be slightly shorter than the container circumference, in order to close tightly your container.

Once inserted the elastic, sew the two ends and close the seam of the edge.

Your fabric lid is ready!!!

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.

See you tomorrow with another easy DIY!!!
