    Thanks so much...just in time for the colder weather when we eat a lot of soups and chili! Great pictures and wonderful directions!

    I think this is fantastic. My two youngest are independent....this will make me get after about letting them warm things up in microwave.

    Thanks for this great tute. I have burned my hand so many times with the dish towel catching or just thinking it is not that hot and spilling all over the stove cause it WAS that hot. These are a great present, too. I know everyone could use one of these!!!

    Just went to our local Victorian Country Christmas. The sellers there wanted $17.50 apiece for these. I'll be making them as gifts for friends thanks to your excellent tute. Thank you!!

    I've made and given away at least a couple dozen of these. Everyone loves them. My 8 year old granddaughter says she likes them to put her bowl of ice cream in so her hands don't get cold. We even use the larger ones to put rolls in or wrap baked potatoes in when they come out of the microwave. They're a great idea.

    I am doing my first post. I was given the directions for Microwave Oven Bowl Mitts this fall. I have made 25 bowl mitts for Christmas gifts. The friends who have received theirs early are delighted. Thank you for the idea.

    Hi
    I am new here and have a dumb question. Could a person use 100% cotton towel as the batting? Also what kind of cotton thread do you use? Mercerized or Glaced or something else?

    Just my opinion yirisrose, but it think the weave on the towel would be too loose. I can't really see I it working well for you. If you only need a small amount of batting, some Walmart's carry it on the roll that you could buy a quarter yard. And so does JoAnn's. As for thread, I use cotton. For this project I don't know as it would matter what type.

    Yirisrose, I don't see any reason why you couldn't use a towel for batting. Many people use towels for batting for hot pads and pot holders.

    Just got back from our Spring Craft Fair and thought it would be great to make my own. I now have the pattern!

    This is a very cool idea. I'm so tired of using a potholder. I wonder how this would work with our square bowls though. I could probably even kill off the extra corners.

    my sister tried putting small darts at the corners also and it comes out looking more like a bowl
    and I don't sew the circle it kind of makes it's own
