FYI......... I have read cautionary tales online about the use of these cozies in your microwave....cotton only is to be used...cotton batting no scrim or glues, cotton fabric and cotton thread....or you could have a fire in your microwave.
We never put ours in our microwave, because I tend to use leftover batting and I do have polyester thread sometimes, so we just heat up whatever we are eating and slide the bowl into the cozy after microwaving. Also good to use when having ice-cream too, to keep you from melting the ice cream with your hand warmth, just a thought.
Bowl Cozy with Corner Handles
I am going to just run through the process and add a PDF sheet you can download at the end with just the sewing instructions on it for ease of use with the pictures provided in the tutorial itself.
Measure your bowl to determine the size your square of fabric will be. My bowl measured 10" so I will be cutting (2)10" squares of cotton fabric and (2) 10" squares of cotton batting
Large Corelle round cereal/soup bowl
I started with 1/2" darts but found this was to open for my bowl
Left 1/2" dart to big and opening....right with an inch dart, the bowl fits in securely!!
Pin (I just used my straight pins) one of your squares of fabric to a batting square and stitch all your fold lines.I know most of the patterns out there say to sew an x (diagonal lines) but I sew on all the lines to add more quilting and to keep the batting secure.
For Small Bowl (with handles)
Cut (2) 8" squares cotton fabric
(2) 8" squares cotton batting
Darts are: 1" x 2" long
Bowl Cozy (no handles)
This version is basically the same with 1 change....
The darts or boxing is done on the diagonal lines
I used the small Corelle round bowl, which measured 8"
Cut (2) 8" squares of Cotton fabric and (2) 8" squares of cotton batting
Build your 2 sections same as for the about, but when you add the darts fold on the diagonal lines and measure from the tip....again for finding your right dart measurements pin the 4 darts and test your bowl. Once you find the right combination you will be flying.
