Bowl Cozy Sewing Tutorial

For this tutorial you will need Cotton fabric (or flannel) and a insulating fabric there are many different options on the market and even some that are used for the inside of oven mitts but for hot soup or cold ice cream you can use two layers of a fleece or fusible fleece

I just had some yellow fleece on hand so i used that and two pattern cotton

The first thing you will do is cut out two pieces of fabric 10″ x 10″ and 2 of your lining fabric at 10″ x 10″

This bowl cozy fits a standard cereal bowl” in the photos i have a correlle bowl

Watch the tutorial here!

place the lining and outer fabrics wrong sides together and sew an X from corner to corner such as shown

At this point you can of course experiment with your machine, do some quilting, maybe add more lines or use your free arm and put swirls and curvy designs totally up to you if you want to add some personality to your bowl cozy

Now you take a square fold it in half and on the folded edge you will measure 2 inches down and 1 inch from the corner on the raw edge, draw a line from both points and you will sew on that line

you will do this on each side of the square and do the exact same on the other square for a total of 8″ times these are referred to as “darts” so you will have 8 darts which you will then see the fabric start to form into the shape of your bowl cozy

This is how they will look after you have done all your darts, from here you will place them right sides together making sure you line up the seams and the corners with each other

sew along the edge with a quarter of an inch seam allowance and leave a hole at some place about 2 or 3 inch’s long to be used for turning

turn it right sides out and make sure you poke out all your corners, the great thing about this is it is reversible also!

top stitch about 1/4″ away from the edge to finish off the edge and then your Done!!

Child Carseat Poncho pattern instructions

 This is my circle skirt pattern, i took the circumference of my daughters neck and the length from her neck line to her waist and then did some math...i would like to refer you over to an excellent video that shows you how to make a circle skirt

With a rectangle piece of paper folded in half you will measure from the fold the radius of the circle of you neckline.

Blue Snowman Fleece, Sample

i measured my daughers neck and took that number which is the circumference and input it into my calculator C = 2πr

Radius Calculator – for me its easier to use this calculator


circle skirt tutorial – how to

Once you find the radius then you will measure from the folded edge from one side to the adjacent side leaving ticks along and then lining them up to create a quarter of a circle, measure along those tick marks the length of your skirt and then you will have the bottom of your skirt, cutting these out with the paper folded and then unfold the paper will reveal a half circle pattern

(this is very hard to explain so please click the link is the best way to learn and then come back!)

 to get the hood pattern i laid down a hoodie onto some paper and  traced around it as best i could also adding a half inch seam allowance

 I cut out 4 pieces for the hood, 2 of each fabric

 Sew the lining right sides together along the curved edge

sew the main fabric right sides together along the curved edge

flipping the hoods to reveal the right side of the fabric place the two hood pieces right sides together

line up the edges that will be the edge that frames the face being sure to line up the seam (be sure the seam lines up as best as possible and pin that while then pinning to the edge.

once you have sewn that push the lining fabric into the main fabric and you will see the hood is in formation, top stitch along the edge that frames the face to finish it off.

lay the circles on the floor lining them up with right sides together, we will be inserting the hood in between the two fabrics

pinning the hood inside the two layers of fabric will allow all the seams to be hidden and no raw edges visible. sewing along this edge with a half inch seam allowance, once finished push the lining fabric through the hole to expose the ponch with right sides out, you should have the last seam left which is the one at the bottom along the entire skirt

I chose to fold in the edges to hide the raw edges and sew a 1/4″ seam allowance around the whole thing. there are many ways to do this and this process might take a bit of time but in the end no raw edges will be visible through the entire poncho and i prefer it this way

if you have any difficulties making this poncho i have created a video that you can visit over at my youtube channel which might fill in some of the gaps as in some situations its hard to explain things with words.

fold open the piece and then lay that down ontop the large piece with right sides together

sew along the left side as shown, around the finger tips and down the  side of the glove stopping at the base of the thumb, flip the thumb piece up and then continue sewing down the rest of the side
