A Bowl Cosy

My latest make is a bowl cosy, which comes in very handy when I catch
up on the morning news in front of the television, eating my porridge!
There are lots of tutorials available on YouTube.
I used this one HERE by the Crafty Gemini.

The pattern can be adapted for the size of your bowls.
By turning your bowl over, measure with a tape measure from the edge,
 all the way over and down to the other edge. Then by adding one inch, this will give
you the size squares you will need for the inside, outer fabric and the wadding. 

I used two co-ordinating fabrics from an Aldi fat quarter pack.

A Triangular Quilted Zip Pouch

With all that is happening at the moment regarding the Coronavirus,
I am guessing that many of my crafting family and friends will be
keeping themselves occupied either with sewing, knitting, crocheting
and card-making.


Today, I am sharing this quilted pouch which I made yesterday afternoon. 
I found the instructions on YouTube.

Since I started sewing, I have been keeping my sewing clips in an empty
Ferrero Rocher box, but I thought this pouch would be perfect to keep them in now.
The fabrics I have used are part of a set of fat quarters from Aldi's.
I have a list of sewing projects to keep me busy, and I also plan to start crocheting
again, something I haven't done since teaching myself to make a matinee jacket
for my eldest nephew who is now 40! I much preferred knitting to crocheting
back then, knitting plenty of baby clothes and items for myself.
I wonder how I will get on this time?

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
