In June 2018, I showed you how to use Therm Fleece to make some coasters and mug rugs, in my post called How to use fusible web that goes in your printer and its characteristics .
This heat resistant material is used for hot and cold insulation to provide protection from hot surfaces up to 390˚. Therm Fleece is designed as a liner and should not make direct contact with a heat source. It’s the perfect product to use for potholders, oven mitts, tea cozies and our project for today – a bowl cozy.
Bowl cozies are easy to make from just 2 squares of fabric and are great for holding a hot soup bowl or cold bowl of ice cream while sitting in front of the television or out on the patio. They can be made in any size to suit your favorite bowl.

- Mark a center horizontal and vertical line on the white side of each Therm Fleece square.
- Mark a small line on each center line, 2¼” from the outside edge.
- Pin 1 square of Therm Fleece to the wrong side of each fabric square. Have the shiny side facing the wrong side of the fabric.
- Using a walking foot, machine baste Therm Fleece to the wrong side of one fabric square, stitching close to the edge of the Therm Fleece. Have the shiny side next to the wrong side of the fabric. Do the same with the other fabric square.
Fold the square, with Therm Fleece attached, in half on one of the drawn lines. Stitch a dart from the small line to the outer edge, making the dart about ¾” wide. Do this on all 4 sides. Do the same on the other fabric square.
- Cut away the extra fleece from the darts and the outside edges to eliminate some bulk.
Come back tomorrow and I’ll show you how to finish up your bowl cozy. You’ll be using it in no time!
