    I'm making these for gifts (and one for myself). I'm cutting it 14" round. Just thought I'd share the idea.

    I saw one of these made for tortillas and also for potatoes and wanted to post if anyone had made one.
    I am so excited to make some of these for family and friends! Thanks for sharing!

    The title of this post intrigued me.
    The picture of your tortilla cozy is absolutely adorable.
    But my ignorance is huge and my curiousity insatiable........what's it for? (please don't say for keeping tortillas warm) Why? When? How?

    I love it. Now, what kind of batting did you use? I have a potato one but it has really thick polyester batting in it. I think I will make one of these tortilla warmers. It is 14" in diameter?

    Thank you for showing the one you made. Could you share about the batting and lining and all that happy jazz?

    Okay, I wonít say itís for keeping tortillas warm (even though it is). Why? So they donít get cold Ö When? When serving them for dinner Ö How? Warm them in the microwave (I think Iíll still warm them in the oven Ė without the cozy Ė and then transfer them to the cozy for serving)

    Yes, 14Ē diameter. I used warm and natural batting and some medium weight duck (?) fabric for the lining, but Iím going to use muslin for the rest of them I think (because thatís what I have).

    I really appreciate the nice comments! Thanks everyone!

    Perfect fabric for this project. I also have the potato bakers, they work great. Good luck with your project. Know they will make great gifts.

    Boy that sound EZ, I have the potatoe fabric and lots of pepper fabric, I think they would make good things to add to my Xmas baskets.

    I just made a bunch of those yesterday to sell at my work. SAME EXACT FABRIC. People just love them and the potatoe bags too.
