DIY Fabric Covered Plates… Dishwasher Safe!!
- Various fat quarter or fabric scraps
- Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge
- Paint Brush or Sponge
Step One: Cut various sized strips of your fabric to accommodate the dish size.
Step Two: Making sure your dish is clean and dry, paint a thin layer of mod podge on it.
Step Three: Place your fabric on top of your mod podge, and gently smooth out any creases or bubbles.
Step Four: Cut off excess fabric on the sides. Repeat for all sides, or all around your dishware.
Step Five: Once your fabric is on your dishware, use a paint brush or sponge again and paint a thin layer of mod podge over your fabric. Make sure you cover the entire fabric, as well as the edges.
Step Six: If a monogram is desired, cut out your monogram letter, and apply it to your dish. Once again, paint over the monogram with the mod podge as you did in the previous step.
Step Seven: Allow mod podge to dry fully. If desired, you can add another layer of mod podge to your creation over the fabric for added security. (I did.)
And you are done!
Half the cost of custom dishware, for double the handmade present WOW factor. Imagine the possibilities.

Just drew this on one of my plain plates. I used a sharpie marker pen(thick) and just started to doodle. As always animals came to my mind first, so we have a bird and a butterfly!! Now im going to pop them in the oven for a little while just on a low temp to stick the marker pen onto the plate.
There you have it!! You don’t have to spend loads of cash buying fancy plates, just be creative and make them yourself. Or ill make one for you!! 🙂
