I love soup in any season, be it cold or hot, chicken, tomato, vegetables, beef etc. But fall and winter feel so much more special with a bowl of my favorite soup, enjoyed in front of the fireplace. We enjoy a bowl of soup almost every day, sometimes twice a day; we just can’t imagine a meal without a bowl of soup. But these lovely fabric bowl covers really come in handy when we eat outside, on the porch keeping the bugs away from our food.

I had so much fun making these, I didn’t stop at just one and I played around with fabric and the elastic. It was such a quick and easy project!
This bowl cover is not water resistant and if you want a seriously tight seal you will need to use foil or plastic wrap. But it’s washable and you can make it in all kinds of colors and patterns and use different methods to sew the elastic so you’ll get slightly different designs as I did.
If you want your food to stay warm longer you could use chips bag instead of the second cotton fabric piece but you’ll need to leave a larger opening and turn the fabrics out carefully as the chip bag might break. Or you can use insulation in between the fabrics.
