Many times over the last few years. I’ve warmed up something in the microwave and then burnt my
Hands taking it out.
I’ve seen those bowl cozy’s on blogs and Pinterest
And I would often say to myself, I’ll make me some one day
And then I’d forget
Until the next time I burnt my hands.
Last night while perusing pinterest, as you do, I saw them and though right
I’m on it
So I pulled out my scraps and found the two biggest pieces
I decided four would be a nice number
So I cut out four of one and three of the other.
Oh no. I wanted them to match. But fear not. I had a long piece the of the sane material. I just cut them to size and sewed the strips
Together and made a square.
Then there was the wadding. It’s expensive this bamboo stuff so I wasn’t going to cut into my part
Piece. Not if I could help it.
So I got my scraps out, because as you know. I don’t throw anything away,
And started piercing them together.
This was time consuming. I needed eight squares of ten inches x ten inches
Not that it mattered. It’s not like I needed them in a terrible hurry
So while hubby watched a movie in the lounge room I was in my sewing room
I finally got my eight pieces and worked out that it was nearly two meters of wadding that I needed
Priced between $16-$20 a meter that was a huge saving I had just made
Plus, saving on landfill and using resources to the best of my ability
Yup. I was pretty proud of myself. Lol
Now I had all my pieces cut up and ready to assemble
So this morning I got into it.
In between doing all my daily chores
I measured and pinned and cut and viola!
My first bowl cozy
And it’s reversible.
Here are the four all finished
The hardest part was the turning of them right side out
It would of been a quick little project, except for the patchwork batting.
But that’s ok
I had seen the movie a number of times and I could listen to it while I worked lol
What do you think?
Now I have to wait for soup season so I can use them lol
See ya xxx
