Cake Stand Cloth

Glass cake stands at a yard sale just draw me like a moth to the flame. 

And while I do occasionally use them to put a cake on, I am also known to set a pie plate or a fruit bowl on top of one as well.

But that brings up the issue of glass on glass and I don't want my cake stand to get scratched.

So I figured if a table could have a tablecloth, then a cake stand could have a cake stand cloth.

I laid the cake stand upside down on the fabric and cut 2 pieces of fabric:

and 1 piece of in-between.

I used fleece that comes on a bolt (it's what I use when I make Christmas stockings).

Put the right sides of the fabric together, the fleece on top, pin it and sew it, leaving a hole for turning.  I used about a 3/8" seam.

Turn it, sew around the edge and voila:

Now your glass pie plate is not scratching up your glass cake stand. 

I know the corning ware pie plate doesn't exactly go with the fabric and the glass cake stand but we'll just have to deal with it for now.
