Sewing your own dish covers is fast and easy. Don't spend a lot of money purchasing them premade when you can make them yourself cheap and easily. They are washable thousands of times and will hold up to a plethora of tasks.

With everything 'going green' these days, people forget how much waste is in the kitchen. Tin foil and plastic wrap are HUGE contributors to our landfills, not to mention how much of your money is wasted year after year by buying these throw away products.

  • Wipe it off when it's not dirty and put it away again
  • Holds up to a lifetime of washings
  • Put it on any dish that you would use plastic wrap or tin foil on
  • Need a cover for a large or abnormally sized dish? This is the answer! Make a custom cover!
  • Included in the images is our home refrigerator. You can see how we use these covers for everything.
