Time and again, I found myself using potholders to carry heated bowls from my microwave or even to hold things from the freezer. I never found them comfortable to hold and often always, the bowl would slip away from my hand. Sometimes I even dipped the potholders in the bowl! That is when I searched for a solution and came up with the idea of sewing up some bowl cozies.

This microwavable bowl cozy pattern is something very easy and useful to sew. This bowl cozy is reversible and also washable. You can choose different fabrics on both sides so that you can flip it over and get a totally new one while you get bored with the other side.

Important Notes:

  • All the materials used for sewing the bowl cozy, including the fabric, the batting, and the thread should be 100% cotton to prevent it from catching fire in the microwave
  • Do not leave the microwave unattended while warming the bowl inside the bowl cozy.
  • Never use the bowl cozy in a convection oven.
  • The bowl cozy is washable and reusable.

 

Supplies

  • *3/8 yard of cotton for 1st main piece (I bought my 4 total) pieces of fabric from Walmart for $6.00
  • 3/8 yard of cotton for 2nd main piece
  • 3/8 yard of cotton for 1st secondary piece
  • 3/8 yard of cotton for 2nd secondary piece
  • 3/4” yard cotton batting 
  • Matching thread
  • Sewing pins or clips
  • Scissors
  • Turning tool
  • Disappearing fabric marker
  • Cutting mat and ruler, measuring tape or ruler
  • Iron and ironing board or iron mat

 

  • Skill Level: Beginner-Intermediate
  • Approximate time to complete 1 Bowl Cozy: 30-45 minutes
  • Approximate cost to make: $2.74

 

As this is a reversible project, you will use 2 different fabrics for each bowl. I bought 4 different fabrics so I can make 2 bowls, so I have indicated them as main and secondary.

 

Instructions

  • With the measurements given below, you can make a bowl cozy to fit a bowl that is approximately 6.25″ in diameter.

 

Cut one 10”x10” piece from the 1st main piece of fabric and one 10”x10” piece from the 1st secondary piece of fabric. Repeat for the other fabrics if you are making two different bowls.

 

Cut a 9”x9” piece of batting for each 10”x10” piece of fabric you cut. [Each bowl will have 2 pieces of fabric and 2 pieces of batting].

Using your fabric marker and a ruler, make a diagonal line from each corner to each corner on each piece of batting, so that you make an “X”.

 

Lay each piece of fabric wrong side up and center the batting on top. Pin or clip in place.

 

Stitch along your “X” on all the pieces of fabric, batting side up.

 

With right sides of the fabric together, fold in half. Line up all your raw edges and pin place. Using your fabric marker and a ruler, starting from the end, make a mark 2.5” across the fold. Then make a mark 1.5” down the short side. Using your ruler, connect the dots by drawing a diagonal line (see photo).

 

Stitch along each of the lines you have drawn on all pieces of your fabric.

 

Trim the seam allowance to about ¼”.

 

With right sides of the fabric together, fold in half the opposite way. Line up all your raw edges and pin place. Repeat the process of marking your 2.5” across the fold and the 1.5” down the short side and connecting the dots by drawing a diagonal line.

 

Stitch along each of the lines you have drawn on all pieces of your fabric.

 

Next, trim the seam allowance to about ¼”.

 

Open your fabric and with right sides together, place one bowl inside the other. Line up all your raw edges and pin or clip into place, making sure to keep the seams lined up perfectly.

 

Using a 1/4″ seam allowance and leaving a 3-4” opening at one side for turning, sew around the entire piece. Be sure to reinforce at the beginning and the end of your opening at the top 😊.

 

Trim the tips and carefully clip a few small notches at the seams.

 

Using a turning tool or a wooden chopstick, turn the bowl cozy right side out. Using a warm iron press flat.

 

Leaving a ¼” seam allowance, run a top stitch all the way around. This will also close your opening.

 

Now you can place a bowl of your favorite food inside the cozy and place it in the microwave. Take it out and your hands are protected!

 

Place a bowl of your favorite cold treat and your hands are nice and warm! Enjoy!
