Isn't it odd when you have something in your head and then you run across a picture of the VERY thing you were thinking of?
Country Living magazine was reading my mind!
A great idea for winter entertaining!
At Goodwill, find a set of bowls and a couple of long sleeved sweaters with patterns you love (such as cable knit, etc.) You'll need one sleeve per bowl. And remember to look for sweaters of any size. The size doesn't matter and looking in a different size may result in finding more options in colors/patterns.
Also, it would be great to get a half off or 99 cent sweater!
Cut the sleeves off the sweaters.
Slide the bowl through the sleeve so that the cuff of the sleeve is at the top of the bowl. Hot glue the edge in place.
Then pull the sleeve to the bottom of the bowl, trim off the excess and glue the bottom pieces to the bowl.
Perfect for a "comfort" theme. Warm, comfort food served in warm, comfort covered dishes!
And wouldn't a set of these make a great gift?
Potato soup or mac 'n cheese, anyone?
Sidenote: This will be an item to be handwashed, very gently. And you can let the knit air dry if it gets wet.
