Soup Bowl Cosy

This year the internet seems to be full of microwave bowl cosies. I succumbed and made a few as Christmas gifts.

It's hard to see but I drew my quilted lines on the template to aid in positioning it. It isn't pinned in place or anything, I just sewed along the edge.

Pairs ready to sew together:
I rounded off the corners a bit to make them easier to turn out once they are stitched together.

Some of the finished bowl cosies:
These are not easy things to wrap. I included instructions in each parcel. But as the parcels were opened, everyone put the cosy on their head as a hat!
