HOW TO MAKE A QUILTED BOWL COZY
2 x 10” x 10” piece of fabric – one piece can be made up of scrap fabric, for example, 5 x 2 ½” x 10”
2 x 10” x 10” batting Wrap-N-Zap cotton batting (recommended) or 100% cotton batting
PLEASE NOTE: To reduce bulk you can use 2 x 9″ x 9″ batting
100% cotton thread
Cut your fabric and batting to 2 x 10” x 10”
If using scrap fabric, sew pieces together, press, and square it to 10” x 10″
Place batting on the wrong side of the fabric for both squares, lining up all the edges
For plain squares draw sewing lines with chalk or a washable marker on each of the diagonals, pin fabric and batting together, sew along drawn line OR for sewn together squares pin fabric and batting together, and sew along the seams, as shown in the diagram below
Fold each square in half with batting side out, make sure the fabric is sitting nicely inside the fold, pin
Measure and mark 1” along the top edge from the fold and 1½” or 2” from the top edge down the folded edge, as shown in the diagram below
Sew along the lines creating your darts
Open up your fabric/batting, and fold in the opposite direction, lining up your edges, pin.
Measure, mark and sew your darts. Each piece will now have four darts, one on each side.
Trim the darts to reduce the bulk, by lining your ruler along your sewn lines and trim with a 1/8″ seam allowance
Open both up, place the two bowls together with the right side of the fabric facing together, forming a bowl
Mark a 2-3″ gap between a join and a point, indicating where to start and stop sewing, sew
Trim excess fabric/batting from each of the corners
Turn right side out
Press, making sure seams and opening are sitting nicely
Sew around the entire edge with a 1/8″ seam allowance, backstitch and the beginning and end
Trim loose threads
