    Default Bowl Cozies

    Just a question for makers of bowl cozies. Most of the tutorials I've seen call for two layers of batting. The one I was gifted only has one layer and seems to work fine. I made a couple with two layers and they just seem harder to turn. Seems one layer of batting would be fine. What do you suggest - 1 layer of batting, or 2? Thanks.

    I've been using two layers of cotton batting. I can still feel the heat when I only use one.

    I use only Pellon Wrap-N-Zap in the cosies and two layers. It is lighter than most, but provides the heat resistance and easier to turn and top stitch. Inexpensive at Walmarts. I buy it by the bolt and they deliver to my local store so no shipping cost.

    two layers of all cotton batting for me. I can feel the heat otherwise. Plus I like the way they hold their shape better.

    Is your batting cut the same size as your fabrics? Is there a rule of thumb for the size of the darts? I am making 10" and 12" bowl cozies.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I use the 2” x 1” darts for a 10” bowl cozy. The direction of the darts is important to create the shape of the bowl.
