Soup Bowl Cozy! A Free Pattern!


“Anyone who tells a lie has not pure heart, and cannot make good soup.”   ― Ludwig van Beethoven 


I am a "sit on the sofa and eat my soup" type girl......and those soup bowls can get a little warm to the fingers!  I used to take a kitchen towel with me to wrap around the bowl......that is until I came across this wonderful free soup cozy pattern! (this size is more of a hot cereal size......)

 
You use 2 fabrics from a layer cake (10x10) and 2 10x10 pieces of batting for each cozy to make one large enough for a cereal bowl.  I found they were a little small for a soup bowl so I added an inch and a quarter to each layer cake square and that worked perfectly!  I apologize for my photos....they really don't show the difference in the sizes very well....the red fabric is the larger one




Here you can see the different sizes a little better.........they sew up in about 10 minutes!

I love these things! I first discovered them when I had my first bout with Bell's Palsy in February, 2017. It seemed that all I could eat was soup. They were perfect. Great way to use scraps too. Once I made them I found several visitors really liked them too. Great gift for people like that. :)

Thanks for the link. I have been thinking about making some for myself. Those look great, but more importantly, they are so functional.

These bowl cosies are fantastic, aren't they! I haven't made any yet but they are on my short list. Perfect for reheating food in the microwave too, when the bowl usually gets hotter than the food.
