When reading through the tutorial, I did see an update about the suggested batting no longer being available. We used regular batting and it worked great for the way we used the cozies. I don't plan on putting mine in the microwave, but use your own judgement there. Whatever the case, the cozies are a quick, easy sew and indeed, practical. Bon appétit!

Tuesday at the Table
Last year when my quilting buddies and I went on retreat, I took along Noodlehead's Open Wide Zippered Pouch tutorial and a handful of zippers and we had great fun doing a group project. So it was an obvious choice to make a project together again this year. Joan offered to bring everything we needed and before long, we'd whipped up what we were cheerfully calling "hot/cold bowl cozies," thinking they'd work equally well with soup or ice cream. And truth be told, they worked flawlessly as we held hot bowls of soup in our hands that evening.
Come to find out, the tutorial originated from Seams Happy and was originally intended as a Microwave Bowl Pot Holder, ie. as a holder to put in the microwave with your bowl.
