What You'll Need:
- Fabric scraps
- Tupperware container
- Elastic string
- Pick up cute patterned fabric at your local craft store, or give new life to an old printed shirt. You can also find elastic string for only a few dollars, which makes this DIY cost around $1 for each cover. Place the fabric print-side down on your work area.
- Now use a pencil to draw around the container, creating a one- to two-inch border. Cut out the round using sharp scissors.
- Give the fabric a quick press, ironing in the edges to make stitching easier.
- Thread a needle with a length of elastic string that's the circumference of the fabric. Start stitching around the outside of the round, creating a hem so the fabric won't fray away. Every five stitches, gently pull the string to tighten the elastic.
- Continue stitching until you've worked all the way around. Position over the container to check the fit and elasticity. Secure with a knot, and cut away any excess elastic string.
- Your covers are ready for keeping splatters away in the microwave! And they are safe to toss in the wash for use over and over again.
