Bread Basket Cover

* This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure for more info. *

Rolls are one of my favorite things to make….but they sure do get cool quick!  The solution?  A bread basket cover.  This little thing can be sewn up pretty quick and because the ends are little flaps, they can cover any size of roll mound or bowl that you are using to store them.

Bread Basket Cover:


Materials Needed:

2 fat quarters

1)  Cut 2 pieces of fabric- one for front, one for back  18″ X 18″

2)  Fold the fabric in half two ways and iron- you will be using the creases to help with the next step

3)  Place the fabric pieces together- right sides facing and pin to secure

4)  Using the iron creases, center the plate and mark with a pencil the outside of the plate– the plate shown was 7 1/2″ – 8″ in size.


5)  Cut on the drawn line.  Make sure you pin those layers so they don’t shift.


6)  Sew around all 4 sides and all the curves, leaving a 2″ opening on one straight end for turning

7)  Snip the curves and corners


8)  Turn right sides out and stitch 1/8″ from the edge- this will also close the opening hole


9)  Place in basket or bowl, load up with rolls and fold over the flaps to cover the contents.
