Bowl Buddies – A Fun Sewing Project!

Bowl Buddy

Last week, I attended the monthly Craft Corner class at Alamo Crafts, a local craft-mall store in San Antonio.  I look forward to Craft Corner because it gives me the opportunity to hang out with crafty people and I get to do a project that someone else has planned and prepped.  After we do a simple but fun project, we enjoy a pot-luck meal together.  A totally awesome was to spend a few hours.

At this class, Kim taught us to how to make a Bowl Buddy – a much better alternative to a potholder when you want to enjoy a bowl of something hot in front of the TV set.  The bowl nestles in snuggly, and it is machine washable, too!

I decided this would be a good way to use up a stash of fabric, so I made 6 more:

Then I got bored and did something else.  I had better get “un-bored”, though, because when my friends saw them, they snatched them up!  And told me that they wanted more, too!

If you want to make some, there are instructions online!

And while I had the machine out, I made some simple fabric bags, too:


What do you with YOUR fabric stash when it is getting too big?
