Up Cycling Lids

Plasticlid

Every time I throw a container lid into the recycle, I wonder–“Isn’t there SOMETHING this can be good for?”  

Problem Solving

I like to set my morning coffee cup on a coaster, but sometimes the cup sticks to the coaster and when I pick it up, the coaster comes with the cup then drops!

I took to placing a paper towel to absorb any condensation, but I’m not fond of the esthetics.

A more esthetically appealing and good use of The Almost Lost Washcloth,

but…the over-hang seems excessive.

Inspiration struck this morning, so I retrieved a lid and began with my heart happy with anticipation!

Materials

  • Plastic container lid–I used a yogurt container lid, cutting off the exterior lip
  • Yarn scrap
  • Tapestry Needle

I used the pattern for the Mini Almost Lost Washcloth and made two to cover the trimmed lid and sewed them together.

Viola!

It’s gonna be perfect! Problem solved!
