One of my most popular tutorials to date has been how to make Microwave Bowl Cozies and for good reason!
Bowl cozies are THE BEST! Not only do they protect your hands and furniture but they double as built-in potholders when used with hot food.
Quick and easy to sew, bowl cozies make great gifts and are also a way to add seasonal fun to your home. They take up little space so why not make them for the holidays, season, special occasions and more?
Want to jump to a specific section? Here are the time markers to go to:
45 secs – materials used
2:25 – sewing the first set of darts
3:44 – sewing the second set of darts
5:16 – clipping the pieces together
7:00 – sewing the bowl cozy
Don’t forget these are great gifts for a hostess, teacher, co-worker or anyone!
Have a happy & creative day!

Thanks , I am sure you are a teacher , that was great 😊
Why thank you! My dad was a teacher so maybe I got it by osmosis 😉
Tara- I can’t wait to make these- did you prewash the cotton material?? Thank you!
I would pre-wash since you will likely need to wash these and don’t want them to shrink later!
Did you prewash and dry your batting before making the bowl cozy?
looking forward to get this pattern My daughter wants me to make them for her. thanks for offering the free pattern
You are very welcome – enjoy!
Where can you buy the material you used in how to make a soup bowl cozy? Your Bee collection material looks like it want be out until March, 2022.
Hi Mary Jane – unfortunately the Bee’s Life Fabric I used in the video came out in October 2020. You might be able to find it online but it is currently out of print. Google “Bee’s Life Tara Reed” or “Bee’s Life Riley Blake Designs” if you really want that fabric.
Thank you so much Tara!
I made several of the cozies. Your pattern and instructions are great. All my friends love them. I have a question. If I want to make these for coffee mugs to keep my tea and coffee warm, what adjustments would I need to make. I can figure out how much I need for the bottom of the cup, but what would I need to do to adjust the darts. Thank you for your assistance.
That’s a great idea but I’m not sure what to tell you. I would recommend cutting pieces on paper then fold and tape different dart options to see what works best for you. The other issue that could come up is the wide variety of handles that are on coffee mugs and teacups – I think that’s why most people do the kind of cozy that wraps around the mug but doesn’t include the bottom. Let me know if you give it a shot – would love to see a photo!
