Microwave Bowl Cozies are not only useful in the kitchen, but they also make great gifts for family and friends. With the step-by-step instructions in the video, you’ll learn how to create these cozies in no time.
My most popular tutorial and video on my YouTube channel have been for a bowl cozy made by measuring and sewing darts. While you don’t have the cost of templates it takes more time and is a little bulkier to sew – so more chances to break a needle.
I was excited when CreativeGrids offered to send me their templates to give a try – I’m now HOOKED!
