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!!

Half Moon Zipper Toiletry, make up or essential oil pouch

For this tutorial you will need Cotton Fabric, a Outer fabric and lining fabric

12″ or more length zipper


Fusible Fleece or Light to medium weight fusible interfacing

you will need 6″ bias tape, if you don’t have bias tape you can take the fabric the lining is made out of and create  your own bias tape

Get the pattern here!

Paid patterns are to help support my youtube channel and to help buy materials to bring you more and quality content, so Thank you! 😀

find the centre of your zipper and fold the fabric in half length ways to find the centre of the half circle, line up the middle of each and start to pin your zipper along  the edge, using a zipper foot will make this process easier Sew along the side of the zipper, next you will put the lining ontop and again sew along the same edge to attach the lining (make sure the lining and the main fabric is right sides together with the zipper sandwich in between

** You can of course sandwich the zipper between the main fabric and the lining all at once but it can be a little tricky sewing a zipper onto a curved edge so nothing wrong with doing it one step at a time if you are a beginner





This is how it will look once you have sew on the lining, now we will upzip the zipper and do the same thing on the other side, making sure the zipper isnt twisted and lining up with the edge of the main fabric and lining

no shame in using 1000 pins or clips haha

This is how it will look once you have done both sides, it will look puckered at the side where the zipper is attached but thats ok

Now you will flip it right sides out from one of the cut notches

Now you will do a top stitch next to the zipper to finish it off the zipper

Free Shipping on Orders $49+

*Use a long stitch length to make it a little more fancy and try to go as straight as you possible can

turn the bag inside out and pinch the notches lining up the zipper with the centre of the notch, clip into place and sew along that edge

add bias tape to finish it off

Turn right sides out and then your done!
