QUILTED MICROWAVE BOWL COZY HOLDERS – A STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL

Here’s a fun and easy project for you! These bowl cozies are so handy to have, for hot and cold foods. They make great gifts, and are also a popular and simple item to make and sell at markets. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure all batting, fabric and thread is 100% cotton if you ever plan to use these in your microwave oven, or if you are making them to sell. Anything else may potentially catch on fire in the microwave! 

 

1. For each bowl cozy, you will need two 10 inch squares of fabric plus two 10 inch squares of batting.
