Make Shoo Fly Covers For Your Best Iced Tea

In the summertime, be sure to serve your best iced tea with shoo fly covers. This simple project doesn't need a tutorial. So for those of you like me who may prefer to "wing it".... you need fabric scraps and something with a little weight to sew on the edges of the hemmed circles. (above I've used small metal washers, mini clothespins and faux pearls with crystal drops. I always make the circle double the diameter (side to side measurement) of the mouth of the iced tea glasses and, of course, a larger circle to serve as a shoo fly cover for the iced tea pitcher. Serve your best iced tea with some home baked shoo fly pie. Play some of your favorite summertime tunes, sit back and relax cause everything (including the tea) is covered. ;)
