Shoo, Flies

Another one out of the UFO drawer and ready for use -
 A few years ago we were making a mesh food cover at our sewing club.  We used the Double Mitre Ruler by the Sewing Revolution to make the frame, then a mesh fabric sewn into the frame.  The corners were to be weighted, but as I have not found the pattern, I am not sure how that was done.  I decided not to try weighting them at this stage, and can do so if needed at a later time.
I did the frame in the class, so just had to sew the mesh in at home.  


This will be very useful at picnics.  Every time we are eating outdoors I think I must finish this off so we can use it to cover the food from the flies that like to invite themselves along.  Now I just need to remember to pack it.

What a great thing to have! There are plenty of different types of table cloth weights over on Pinterest when you get to that point.

Now WHY have I not thought to make them. I love your's, the colour of the frame is gorgeous.
