I have been sewing bowl cozies for the last week!
I didn't know there were so many ways to sew a cozy. But a Google search came up with MANY!
I finally chose to use the method I saw in a video tutorial by The Crafty Gemini HERE.
I modified her shape and size, but the rest of the directions made it a fairly easy item to sew.
I cut my pressed fabrics and the 100% cotton batting using my 9.5 inch squaring ruler. Maybe if I had a 10 inch squaring ruler I would have used that.
I sewed a fabric square diagonally (wrong side on battinig) onto a square of batting using the "eyeball" method Vanessa described in her video. I found that if I gently held the point opposite the one feeding through the needle the stitching line was pretty straight.
I did not cut the curved corners as she did, but if I had, it would have eliminated a tough job of sewing the pointy corners on my cozy in the final edge stitching.
I made a little cardboard marker for measuring the starting and stopping points of the darts.
I didn't mark a line, I just sewed from mark to mark, back stitching on the open edge(where my pen is).
I found That Purple Thang was the best tool to work the points of the corner out.
Have you made bowl cozies? What pattern or method did you use?
