This year is very topsy-turvy to say the least for me. 7+ months of unemployment, selling the house so that I don't lose it (and having no idea of where I'll end up at this point), trying to find a new job.....and so on. I know I'm not alone in going thru things like this, there are many who are going thru this and far worse.
Christmas isn't that far off so I'm starting to work on simple Christmas gifts that can be packed and easily carried with me if most of my things end up in storage for an extended length of time. And because the budget is tight this year, I'm working making all the gifts that I can.
The basic bowl cozies take 2 - 10" squares of fabric and I use 2 - 9.5" squares of the wrap-n-zap batting per cozy that I make. These will fit up to a 6" diameter bowl.
If you've never made one before, here is a good Bowl Cozy Tutorial to show you how to make them. One thing you want to remember as you choose fabric for cozies, make sure there is no metallic paint on them especially if they will be used in the microwave.
