HOW TO MAKE A QUILTED BOWL COZY

MATERIALS


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

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

Bowl cozy pin together

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

Bowl cozy draw lines

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
