    Microwave Bowl Potholders

    This was my go to Christmas present this year. Saves a lot of burned fingers when taking hot bowls out of the microwave.

    Great idea. I have been looking at the tut on the board and have added them to my "to do list".

    Every time I make one and take it to classes it disappears. Returns at next class just like magic. Slowly the whole class is making them by looking at mine.

    Great idea especially for those die hard football fans.

    I like them too!
    Just remember that if you are going to put them in the microwave, everything has to be 100% cotton: thread, fabric & batting. Warm and Natural has a polyester scrim, so make sure you use Warm & Plush!

    great ideas. I never bound mine, will have to look into that.
    I'm making for my guy cousin for next year. I made him coasters, and I thought i'd have to explain them, but he knew what they were.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I have a pair of the little microwave mitts that magnetically stick to the microwave. I use those for getting hit things out of the microwave. I would worry about the bowls catching fire.

    I use mine when I have ice cream besides hot left overs. Good job. Love the choice of fabric.

    They were my go-to present for family this year too--everyone was just thrilled and amazed-it was suggested that I "patent" the idea! Had to explain that it wasn't original LOL!

    Our whole quilting group has been making these the last few weeks. We have had so much fun and great xmas gifts to give to anyone. I purchased my WRAP-N-ZAP at Walmart and also Jo-Ann sell this product. I have been using up some layercake material as a 10" square is perfect. I love the one with, team motif. I am going to go get my Green Bay Packer material and make 4 of them for my son. What a great idea, also have made dog motif for friends who love the dog world.

    I made three for my MIL with Ohio State fabric for Christmas. Haven't heard if she likes them or not. (Nothing new there). I plan on making some for my DH and me as I know I would use them. I always burn my fingers when taking soup out of the microwave.
