Video Tutorial: How to Make a Microwave Bowl Cozy

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

This tutorial uses fabric from my Bee’s Life fabric collection manufactured and distributed by Riley Blake Designs. Ask for it at your favorite fabric store or online retailer.

*Disclaimer: it is my understanding that any 100% cotton batting should work in the microwave but obviously do what you feel comfortable with.
