This cup/glass cover takes a bit of time to do but is great for the outdoors to keep insects out of drinks.


Material

  • lace
  • beads
  • ribbon

Method

  1. Cut the shape using a saucer.
  2. Line one side with ribbon then with beads.
  3. Stitch bead circles around then line the reverse side.

Notes... Have fun with the children, try different styles and materials with beads.

  • What a great idea….similar things were around years ago to cover the sugar bowl from the flies. It is an item that can well be used in QLD especially in summer when the flies are at their worse.

  • Lovely idea reminiscent of older times. Think I may try a version that has an elastic edge to make a more snug fit for some of the containers we use when outdoors in the summer time. Thanks for sharing
