Free Microwave Bowl Cozy Pattern


When winter comes around, our dinner menu changes a bit.  I tend to add a lot of soups to the menu.  Not just because they are tasty, but because a big pot a soup can make two or three meals in our home.

And when I can pull out a pre-made meal from the freezer, I'm a happy camper.  But heating up that meal can be a bit of a challenge.  We don't always have time to set a frozen soup on the stovetop and let it thaw.

Sometimes it is easier to use the microwave to heat the soup.  That is why I am loving the microwave bowl cozy pattern.

***Disclaimer*** 
Sew Simple Home is not responsible for issues that may arise from using your own Microwave Bowl Cozy.  Please make sure that ALL materials are made with 100% cotton including fabric, thread, and batting.  Do not use cozy for more than 4 minute intervals to avoid scorching of any kind.  You are at your own risk when creating and using.  Do not leave unattended when in use.


I can put frozen, canned or leftover soup in a bowl, set in the cozy and microwave.  My kids can pull them out of the microwave with now problem.

Or I can heat up my lunch and put it in the microwave bowl cozy and enjoy reading a book by the fire or chatting on the couch without burning my fingers or having to use a dirty pot holder.

These diy bowl cozies are actually very simple to make.  Plus, they are great gifts for friends, family and even teachers.

Just like the Microwave Potato Sack, make sure that you use only 100% cotton materials, batting and thread.  Anything that goes in the microwave needs to be cotton.  Polyesters and other synthetic fibers will melt or burn in the microwave.

Even cottons can burn if they are heated for more than 3-4 minutes in the microwave.  So make sure to watch your microwave if you place the cozy in it.

You don't have to heat the cozy if you'd rather not.  You can just heat your soup first and use the cozy more like a pot holder to keep the heat from scorching your table tops or hands.

I'd also recommend washing your fabric before sewing.  Since 100% cottons shrink.  Otherwise your cozy will shrink and the dimensions will be off.


Ultimately, you can use the microwave bowl cozy pattern however it suits you best.  Now let's get you sewing.




How to Make Microwave Bowl Cozy
Materials Needed

Step 1
Cut out 2 bowl cozies in the cotton fabric and 2 in batting.  Place one batting piece on a flat surface and one cotton fabric over the top with the right side up.  

Stitch a crisscross pattern from one corner of the cozy to the other.  Repeat across the other side.

Step 2
Fold the right sides of one of the v-shaped openings together.  Stitch from the point to the ends to create a dart.  Repeat with all of the v-shaped openings.

Step 3
Trim down each of the darts to remove the bulk.

Repeat steps 1-3 with the remaining cotton  and batting piece.

With Right Sides Together (RST), place the two bowl cozy pieces together.  Matching the pointed edges and darts.  Pin in place.

Mark a 2" opening with pins on one of the straight edges.

Step 7
Pin the opening closed.  Topstitch around the entire cozy.  Press.





That's it!  Now place your favorite bowl inside the cozy and enjoy a yummy bowl of soup.

Plus, you can launder your Microwave Bowl Cozy, just like you would the  DIY tortilla warmer, by throwing it into the washing machine.  Just make sure to line dry it so it doesn't shrink.

  1. How do you know how big to make the darts on the bowl cozy so they are all the same size?
