This is a project in the making. Sewing is not exactly my strong suit. In fact, the other poster on this blog used to sew my stuff in Home Ec.
I work with a lady in her 60s and she goes away a few times a year to a quilting weekend with a group of friends. They rent a house with enough space for several of them to work on projects at the same time.
She has made me different things in the past, which I will probably unveil later. Anyway, last weekend she had her quilting weekend and I asked her to make me a couple of koozies to put around bowls when you heat them up in the microwave.
She’s talked about these before and I think it is a really great idea! I don’t know how many times I’ve burnt myself on a bowl or ended up with really cold hands from ice cream.
She took two 10 inch squares of fabric for each koozie and a piece of batting that is safe to put in the microwave. She told me this is simple to make and I will update after I have my lesson. She said she will teach me how to make them.
