During the summer and fall of last year, I did many demonstrations of the Boxed Bag template. Many, many demonstrations. Often, I was asked how you could customize the size of the Bowl Cozy. Because it is incredibly easy to make any sized bowl cozy with the Boxed Bag Template.
I’d explain that to make any sized bowl cozy, you cut the square the size of the bowl (plus 1/2″ for seam allowance) and you cut the darts the height of the bowl, rounded down to the nearest whole or half inch.
That seems simple enough, but it really helps to have a video to show you how to make your custom bowl cozy. And it really, really helps to have a printable that you can keep on file to refer to. So, that’s what I’ve done. I’ve created a video showing you how to measure your bowls for their custom bowl cozy, and I’ve made a free printable that you can download to reference for all your future bowl cozy making!
Watch the video here:
I made a fully illustrated cheat sheet, and I’m offering it for free. You will still need the Boxed Bag Template and the Bowl Cozy pattern to complete your bowl cozy – this free printable shows you how to adjust the measurements to make your bowl cozy custom to your bowl.

I ordered the Bowl Cozy, did not know that I needed the boxed bag template. It may be great if they could be ordered to feather! Now I may need to wait whil I order the boxed bag template!! Love the cozy’s & want to make them for gifts!!
Yes, you can order them together. But some people already have the template, and just want the pattern. <3
