About This Class

Have you ever reached into the microwave and burned your hand on the bowl? It hurts!

Make a microwave bowl cozy or potholder and protect your hands from the hot bowl. Make these easy fabric bowls and give them as gifts to protect the hands of someone you love.

This easy sewing project is great for beginners or more advanced sewists. The bowl cozies work up quickly and are very forgiving making them a great simple project for just about anyone to tackle.

The only thing that you must do for this class is to be sure to use all cotton materials, including thread, fabric, and batting. This way nothing will catch on fire or melt in the microwave. Other than that, these fabric bowls are a cinch so let's get started making a microwave bowl cozy.

Supplies needed:

Cotton fabric (10 x 10 inches)

Cotton batting (9 x 9 inches)

Cotton thread

Sewing machine, scissors, pins

I love this idea! I'm always burning my fingers on hot bowls... I loved all your tips as well.

Great class for a practical project. I'm a potter and I'm going to make cozies and coordinating bowls. Until now, I 've had my sister-in-law make the cozies for me but after this class, I will be able to make them myself.
Very quick and easy idea for a Christmas present. And I love the cat who sews.

I'm Peggy and I enjoy crafting. A lot. I'll be sharing some of my fun craft projects here on Skillshare.

Many of my classes are reuse and recycle craft projects, which makes them inexpensive to make.

I've also published an easy sewing class and hope you'll check it out. If you have a bit of sewing experience my simple sewing projects will be perfect for you!

Have fun crafting!
