    Thank you for great instructions. Made one and now think I will make several! Love that they are washable.

    A lot of quilt shops will tell you Warm and Natural is 100% cotton but I have found it is NOT. It has a small non-cotton content. PLEASE if you plan to make these (and I have made several), use Warm Tater batting AND 100% cotton thread. It really does make a difference.

    Great idea!
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    Glaced cotton thread has a coating that will eventually end up in your sewing machine...do NOT use it for machine sewing..It also states that on the spool info...the reason not to use anything poly for the bowls is the melting factor that could happen in the microwave and ruin it..

    Quilt shops in South Carolina are now selling kits for these and are calling them "Koozies"

    I have read this tute many times and it is bookmarked. I have made many over 12 for gifts and I do give them away if my husband lets me. He absolutely loves them and uses them any time he has a bowl, hot cold whatever. Thanks so much for sharing this. I appreciate you.

    there was a tute for these a yr or so ago but so many tutes get buried under all the new topics. That being said-thanks, it is always nice to be reminded of a good project. These are useful and can be made to match placemats, pot holders, table runners etc. great tute! like so many have said; these make good gifts too.

    Mine have turned out fine. A bit of hand shaping and all is well. I would prefer to not dryer dry them. Air drying leaves the shape the way you want it. Not the way it wants to turn out.

    Do these work well for glass bowls? And I take it the fabric stays cooler so you can hold under bowl after its taken out of microwave?

    These bowls were shown at the quilt guild meeting just last week - I'm so glad I found this tutorial - these will be perfect for my grandkids to use when they get home from school and make an after-school snack - they won't risk burned fingers or spilled food due to heat. Thanks so much!

    I'm little late in catching up with things and this is no exception! When I saw the first photos, I thought what a great idea for a Thanksgiving/Christmas buffet table. Make some of the bowls for different casserole dishes, would help protect the table and help keep the food warm for a little longer. Chris

    I made these awhile ago and made for different size bowls. Use one every morning for my oatmeal. just remember to use 100% cotton material, batting and thread so no chance of a fire.
