I personally use the Studio - mine is called and Accucut.  I got it second hand and it's the school version and came with a bunch of cardstock dies.  But it is the exact same thing as the Studio2 so don't get put off if you watch the YouTube video and mine has a different label.

Now say you choose the largest machine, the Studio 2.  And purchase the biggest bolt of batting.  You will get 330 cuts of batting for that bolt.  I tried it.  And I made a video of me doing it!  That's 165 Soup Cozies.


You will need the exact same amount of Quilting Fabric.

Most Quilting Fabric is 36 Inches by 42 - which is 1512 inches per yard!

Each cozy is 10x10 x 2 + 200 Inches 1512 divided by 200 7.50 Cozies per yard.

165 Cozies total - divided by 7.5 per yard.

Means you need Approx 24 Yards of Fabric

I would say on the high end get 24 yards of fabric  and make sure it's decent quality!  Don't go for $5 dollar fabric.  You want to sell these for a good mark up.  So 24 yards of $12 dollar a meter fabric is $288.00. 

(You can find fabric on sale) Get the $20 a meter fabric that's on sale for $12

Your Cost is $288.00.

Get the $15 Dollar a Meter Fabric that's on sale for $8.

24yards at $8 is  $192.


Now your Cost with the Studio Machine plus batting is $1024 plus $288 for Quilting Fabric.

You are now into this project for US $1312



Now your Cost with the Studio Machine plus batting is $1239 Plus $367 for Quilting Fabric

You are now into this project for Canadian $1606


Time for a name drop....Connecting Threads has awesome fabric.


Home Stitchery Decor Blog Post Article about Soup Cozy's recommends fabric from Connecting Threads


You will have to buy thread - cotton thread.  Which I am going to guess it $50 American or Canadian at worst. 


So total cost - American $1360 some odd dollars

Canadian $1650 some odd dollars


And now it's time to sell these....

I sold over 200 this Christmas Season.  They were my second best seller of the season - after my Farmhouse DIY Rugs. 

I live in Canada and they sold for $15 each. 

I got a total of $165 Bowl Cozies and sold them for $15 each.

Total $2475!!!

You can sell them in the US for $15 as well.


$2475 - $1650 = $825 profit.  Canadian

And you only have to purchase the machine once!

$2475 - $1360 = $1115 Profit


Imagine if you will only having to purchase the fabric the second time around.


Batting $165

Quilting Material $288

Thread $50

= $503

Soup Cozy's Made 165 x price $15 = $2475

PROFIT = $1972


Canadian Pricing

Batting $215

Quilting Material $367

Thread $50

= $632

Soup Cozies Made 165 x price $15 = $2475

PROFIT $1843

Love your video. It was so informative. I sew and sell bowl cozies on a much smaller level, at our local Farmer’s Market and a few craft events. I had no idea it could be done at the level you sale them. Thank you again for all your help.
