Materials:

  •  2–10″ squares of fabric

Assemble the Soup Bowl Cozy:

1. Layer each square of fabric on top of a square of batting. Pin around the squares.

2. Quilt an X through each fabric/batting square.

3. Fold one fabric/batting square in half with batting side out. Using a marking tool, mark a dot one inch from the fold and two inches from the top. Draw a line between them.

4. Repeat Step 3 on the bottom corner of the folded square.

5. Sew along both drawn lines. Trim seam allowance to 1/8″ to prevent bulk.

6. Fold the fabric/batting square in half in the opposite direction, and mark the fold edge one inch from the fold and two inches from the top and bottom. Draw a line between them.

10. Turn one bowl shape right side out.

12. Sew around the edges of the layered bowl shapes with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Leave a 3″ opening along one side for turning.

step12edit

13. Turn the bowl right side out through the opening. Push out corners.

step13edit

14. Topstitch around the edge of the bowl, turning the opening in for a 1/4″ seam when you get to it to close.

I made 10 of these bowls for co-workers in one night! They’re such an easy project and make great gifts! I paired my bowls with a soup mix and a cute printable gift tag from Make It Yourself magazine.

It’s so fun to choose fabrics for this project! Since the bowls are reversible, it’s important that the fabrics coordinate.

I’ll be enjoying warm soups and chili all winter! The bowl is perfect for reheating soups in the microwave (it’s microwave safe!), and for protecting hands when the chili is hot out of the slow cooker.

  1. Thank you so much for the well written instructions and the easy to print PDF was a great time saver for me. If you measure your bowl from one lip, down across bottom and up to lip on opposite side, you will know what size to cut your squares. My 6″ diameter bowls measure 8″ from one lip, down and up to other side. 8″ squares work perfectly for them. Thanks again.

  2. Can you tell me how to get the top stich going. I seem to get all bird nests cause the bowl is to thick to get through. I’m using same products as demonstrated. Thank you.
