    Hi Everyone,

    Here I am with my finished Microwave Fabric Bowl!! I just love how this great pattern went together & my husband has already claimed this finished project. I am planning on making a few more for our house & then more for Christmas gifts. My Mother is in Assisted Living & I know that she could really use one. Now I can't wait to see how everyone else's turn out. I hope you are sewing right now & will be posting your photo's soon!!

    Love, love the plaid fabric! Especially with my favorite PURPLE! I'm dressed and ready for the party, but alas no party to go to. (I'm treating my machine to a trip to the spa - you know, maybe good cleaning, a little oil, and a tweak or two for good behavior!) We'll be ready to play in a few days.

    WOW!! I really like the fabric you have chosen to make your Microwave Bowl out of. I can just about imagine it all done. Pretty-Pretty!! I hope your machine has a good time & at the Spa & returns to you soon, so you get to sewing on this month's project. We will all be waiting to see the finished product!!

    Hey I'm ready for spa day! Very pretty autumn colors, they would look beautiful with the chili I'm cooking for dinner.

    DeeDum............your fabric bowls are wonderful. I really like your choice of fabrics that you used for them. I can just see all of us at our machines whipping these out like crazy. They are going to make neat gifts. Thank you so much for sharing yours today with all of us!!

    Judy...........What a great job you have done on your Microwave fabric bowls & I really like your color combinations. Would the fabric to the left of your bowl be the matching napkins? I am glad you will be making more, please share your new photo's when you get them all done!! Great Job!!

    A few ready to go. Used to use Warm Tater batting, now using Wrap and Zap especially made for the microwave. Rebuilding stock because I was sick for a month and they almost sold out. Hustling now to get back in control.

    WOW!! You sure have made some gorgeous Fabric Bowls. What a wonderful assortment of prints & color's. I hope you can get caught up really soon & stay well. It's certainly no fun being sick for a month. How many do you like to keep on hand at one given time? Thank You for sharing your photo's with all of us!!

    Beautiful fabric bowls!

    I see there is Warm Tater batting and Wrap n Zap batting. How are they made differently than plain Warm & Natural cotton batting? I have read some reviews and can't see the difference. Is it just for liability purposes because it says 'especially made for the microwave' on the packaging?

    I was looking online for factual information but have not been able to find anything definitive yet. I do remember reading a while back that batting designed for the microwave has been cleaned/processed more than other 100% cotton battings to ensure it contains no scrim or other metal fragments. Whatever I read stated that even though batting may be 100% cotton, it still contains some degree of metal and other materials due to the manufacturing and cleaning process which causes problems in the microwave. Wish I could remember where I found that information.........but so far no luck.

    Found some information on Warm and Natural that I believe will help to explain the batting difference;

    http://www.warmcompany.com/wnpage.html

    Down in the question and answer section one of the the makers of Warm and Natural provided this answer:

    Is warm and natural 100% cotton or is it 80-20?


    - "Thank you for your question! Warm & Natural is 87.5% cotton fibers and 12.5% Polypropylene scrim. Warm & Natural is made with 100% USA Grown High grade cotton fibers. The cotton fibers are then needlepunched through a extremely thin stabilizer made of polypropylene, which is a polyester fiber. This stabilizer makes Warm & Natural strong and durable!"

    These resins are what may catch fire in the microwave.

    Thank you Cactus. I think I will get the stuff that won't catch fire.
