Microwave Bowl Cozy video tutorial

Microwave bowl cozy – video tutorial

Microwave bowl cozies are so handy! I have one at work and a couple at home. And I use them almost every day.

They make great Christmas gifts and they’re perfect gifts for teachers.

Use 100% cotton fabric, thread and batting so it doesn’t burn in the microwave.

So far I’ve been using it for 2 minutes at a time and it’s been great. No more burnt hands.

And it’s easy to wash too. Go on, make yourself one.

How to make a microwave bowl cozy

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

  1. These are so wonderfully handy to keep from burning your fingers!! I made them several years ago for Christmas gifts, along with some for plates (just a bit larger with shallower “darts”).

  2. I’ve made hundreds of these over the years and sell them at craft shows. They are quite a hit and my best selling product! I also make a larger one from 12″ squares that work well for small casserole bowls.

  3. If, when you are sewing the two final pieces together, you sew all the way to the end of the seam and off- turn the square in the direction you are sewing next, fold towards you the seam allowance you just sewed, start sewing the next seam right from the edge and again off, repeat the fold- you will find the corners will be absolutely crisp angles when you turn it inside out.

  4. I love these. I just gave a set to a friend for her 5 yr. old. I doubled the cotton batting tho to make it sturdier. It also holds it’s shape going thru the wash. 🙂 – New subscriber to your YouTube channel. – Thanks for the videos.
