Potluck Pleaser

Whether it’s holiday time or not, around here we are constantly getting together for dinner with friends and family. To make the hostess’s job easier we all pitch in with salads and side dishes. Many of my serving bowls come with plastic lids, but lots don’t. So to make the deliveries pretty I like to make bowl covers.

I used this tutorial to make the bowl cover above. I think I made it a bit too big for this bowl, but it works just fine. Of course I had to add some beautiful embroidery. I love sunflowers, so I used a design from Autumn Colors Embroidery Designs #sc061d. That’s the set that includes the instructions for the Seasonal Guest Towel pictured above. You can buy the designs and project instruction in my Etsy store.

The “Happy Thanksgiving” is not included in the embroidery designs. But you can download it here. The text is shaped specifically to fit above the sunflower design.

Hope you try it. It’s a really easy project. And it would make a great gift item.
