Hot Water Bottle Cover

Updated: Apr 14, 2020

Have your own personal Hot Water Bottle Cover, great for gifting during the cold Winter months.

What you will need:

1 - Fat Quarter for outer fabric

1 - Fat Quarter for lining

2 - pieces of Bosal Poly therm fleece 11” x 15”

8 - 5mm eyelets

Ribbon or cord

Step 1.

From your outer fabric fat quarter, cut 2 pieces of fabric measuring 11” x 15”, place these on top of your poly therm fleece panels with the fluffy side facing up and quilt the two layers together using your preferred method. Once this is done, trim each outer panel to 10” x 14”

Step 2.

Place both outer panels on top of each other with right sides together. Pin and sew around using ¼” seam allowances leaving the top edge open.

Turn right side out.

Step 3.

From your lining fabric fat quarter, cut 2 pieces of fabric measuring 10” x 14.5” and repeat step 2 but this time leaving a 3” gap at the bottom.

Step 4.

Place your outer cover inside your lining with right sides together. Pin and sew all the way around the top edge.

Step 5.

Turn your cover right side out using the 3” gap you left in the bottom of the lining and sew the gap closed.

Step 6.

The lining will be slightly longer than the outer cover so it will create a decorative edge at top. ( if you do not want this edge, cut your lining panels the same size as your outer panels.) Press and topstitch all the way around to hold the fabric in place.

Step 7.

Eyelet placement:

Measure down 2” from the top edge and 1.5” from the side and mark your first dot, measure across again 2” at a time to mark the last 3 dots and make your holes

repeat on the other side and Install you eyelets using the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Step 8.

To finish, feed your ribbon/cord through the eyelets and tie in a bow at the front.

Your Hot Water Bottle is now ready to use!
