Following the video on youtube by TheCraftyGemini, I made some bowl cozies. In the video, however, she says to use 9-inch squares and I used 10-inch squares. I used AGM Fruit Salad fabric, and Susan Winget’s Baked with Love Kitchen Words fabric.
Then I used a ruler and tailor’s chalk to mark an X from corner to corner, then stitched the X.
Then I folded each square in half and measured 1 3/4 inch across and 3/4 inch up on each side at the fold, then cut. I wanted to skip a step by not marking it 2 inches by 1 inch like in the video; however, it was a mistake. It was not as accurate and it is very important to get these darts accurate, as they have to be the same so that the pieces fit together well.
Then I used a round container to trim the corners to make them round. Again, it is very important to get each of these the same size so that they fit together correctly.
Then I fit the outer shell with the inner shell, right sides together and stitched all the way around, leaving a two- to three-inch opening. Turn right side out. Fold the opening edges in, keeping them closed and stitch a 1/8” seam all the way around.
It fit several different types of bowls very well. On the left is the normal Corelle bowl. Top bowl is a vintage bowl that is pretty tall. The bowl on the right is a large soup bowl. I think they would fit better if the darts were a little larger, making the cozy more snug.
