Supplies For How To Make A Soup Bowl Cozy

Supplies for soup cozy

You only need a few basic supplies for this cute soup bowl cozy. You need some fabric obviously, and I just used some I had left over from another project. You only need 2 10″x 10″ pieces. You’ll also need some wrap n’zap insulating fabric, so you don’t burn your hands pulling your soup out of the microwave. You’ll need some thread, a pencil, and some scissors. I also added a rotary cutter, cutting mat, and ruler to the supply list because it makes cutting your fabric quick and precise. If you plan on getting into sewing as a hobby, I highly recommend it.

How To Make A Soup Bowl Cozy

Start this how-to make a soup bowl cozy sewing tutorial by laying out your fabric flat. With a measuring tape or cutting board, cut two fabric pieces 10″x10″. You can do this with folded fabric or if you would like to different sides then cut one piece of one fabric and one piece of another.

Measure Padding

Next, lay your wrap n’ zap and then cut 2 10″x10″ squares. I cut this folded to get the two pieces. Lay out the two pieces of wrap n’ zap fabric and then place your main fabric print side up on top so that you have two separate stacks of fabric and wrap n’ zap fabric squares.

Sew corner to corner

Now on this how to make a soup bowl cozy sewing tutorial, it’s time to sew! Run the pieces you stacked through your sewing machine from corner to corner. This will give your soup bowl cozy some structure.

Make a cross

Do this twice to make a cross across the fabric. Do this on each piece.

Measure side

Place your square fabric side up and then fold from the bottom up. Measure 2″ on the long side and mark. Then measure 1″ on the short side and mark. Repeat on Wrap n Zap.

Trim Excess

Do this on the bottom of each side and draw a line connecting the two marks. You will then stitch along this line. Cut off excess, making sure not to cut your stitching.

Align
Flip cozy

Repeat this process on both squares. Once completed, fold the fabric where the points meet. Repeat the above process of marking and stitching the ends. Trim off excess.

Open your bowls up. Flip one to where the wrap n’zap is face outward and up. Align the points.

Clip or pin them together. Stitch around the outside of the bowl, making sure to get fabric and stuffing. I usually do a 1/2 inch stitch to make sure that the fabric doesn’t get away from me when flipping it right side in. Make sure when stitching to leave a 1-inch hole to flip your design right side in.

The form you have selected does not exist.

After flipping your soup bowl cozy right side out, check to make sure you don’t see any of the wrap n’ zap. If you do flip it back inside out and stitch again. Once you have it right side in and don’t see any of the wrap n’ zap, make sure your points are pushed out. Fold in the hole and topstitch around the outside.

Push Points Up

After topstitching around the cozy, push the bowl down and make sure the points are up. This will make the bowl shape. Now the bowl cozy is ready for serving.

Finished soup bowl cozy
