10 Microwave Dish and Bowl Cozy Sewing Patterns

Quilted "Warm Pad" Tutorial
Mollie Johanson

A hot bowl of soup or chili is great—except when it's too hot to take out of the microwave! Solve that problem with a handmade potholder designed to go in the microwave along with the bowl. You can grab your heated food and enjoy it right away.

Here you'll find several styles and sizes of bowl cozies, plus a few other items to keep your food warm and your microwave free from food splatters.

The secret to making these bowl holders is to work with 100% cotton fabric, batting, and thread. Using polyester can result in melting or even fire in your microwave.

Get ready to enjoy some leftovers and start sewing a bowl cozy or two!
