What on earth is a bowl cozy you may ask? It is like a hot pad, but for a bowl – & these can go in the microwave!
I found a tutorial online and these are very simple – once you start them. You may notice that they are all purple – another gift for the hubs, purple is his favorite!
After making them I want to figure out how to make them for a casserole dish too. How often do you make something for a church party or other event and take with your hot pads, only to forget them. I think this would be great for that too!
Start with 2 squares of fabric (100% cotton only) that are the same size, around 10″ x 10″. Cut batting the same size for each, also all cotton.
Other forms of fabric, batting & cotton could be used, but NOT for the microwave. With my boys I knew it would have to be all cotton so there would be no fires.I think one of my kiddos deleted some photos from my phone – there were a few other great shots that I took. Sew an “X” in each square (with 100% cotton thread) and it’s batting. Sew some puckers and trim the edges so they sit like this.
Nest the one inside the other with batting side out on each. Sew a 1/4″ seam around the outside edge leaving space to turn it right side out.Top stitch around the outside edge and fold in the raw edge from where it was turned inside out. Viola! Bowl cozy is complete! Now to design a bigger one – and take it to a party.
