Sew-ers (sewists?) will know what it is

Hello Fellow Glowforgers,


This is my very first project and I designed it myself on Silhouette Designer Edition.

I saw these all over the place online for $15-$30 and thought…I can make my own! I’m actually very proud of the project. I only cut two sizes so far as a sample but there are six sizes total. One size uses the outside piece and the other size uses the inside piece. I didn’t put the sizes on the templates :frowning_face: but I definitely will add that for the next time.

The words are scored and the big pieces are cut.

Enjoy and get cutting (and sewing)!!

p.s.-It’s a template to make bowl cozies for hot bowls and microwave meals. Makes great quick gifts and is a great scrap-buster. Of course, since this is a Glowforge group, you can most definitely give the templates as a gift!! You can find the sewing instructions anywhere online; just search “bowl cozy”.

I know very little about sewing but for some reason I know that the word you are looking for is “seamstress”. I like “sewist” too though.

The term “sewist” has been around for about 150 years, although it only became popular in the last 20 years.

I know of several people who describe themselves with the term, including the daughter of a friend.

Thank you so much for sharing. I am a sewer and have been seeing this advertised and wasn’t sure if I was going to purchase but wanted to try and make one. You are so great to do this, again thank you!

Honestly, I never thought about any term besides seamstress…which just made me realize that “sew-er” without the hyphen is sewer…in the nicest idea possible-home of the Ninja Turtles…
