    I use hobb heirloom scraps which is a 80/20. the 80 is the cotten then there is warm and natural with is all cotten. You want to use all cotten.

    I also made a paper pattern. I iron the creases in the fabric to cented it......this was so fun. I now want to make some of those cute fabric boxes lol but I need to go do my other project...I just got sidetracked when I saw the micro mitten lol....

    Please forgive me if the pic's are not perfect. This is my first time doing a tutorial.
    First of all I would like to say It is a MUST that you use 100% Cotten batting.( I used warm and Natural).
    There are three sizes you can cut your fabric squares in:
    1) !4" for round casserole dish
    2) 12" for a medium casserole dish or larger bowl
    3) 10"for a typical cereal bowl size.
    Grab one of your bowls from the cupboard that you usually like to use for RE-HEATING and take it into your sewing room before you begin.
    I am making mine in a 12" square because that is the size that seems to fit most of my bowls.

    I would assume you would want to use 100% cotton thread along with the cotton fabric and cotton batting, like the potato bags - right?

    The Warm Co. now carries batting specifically for potato bags. Not sure how it differs, but it would probably work well for these, too.

    Thank you for such an outstanding tutorial. Look what you helped me do. I'm giving the bowl along with the rug mug to my DD, she will love it. Considering how she so admired a sandwich of fabric that I was stippling on and cut in circles for coasters (Still had raw edges). This will look great on her office desk. Thanks again.

    I was telling my DH about this (he was warming leftovers in the microwave) and even HE loved the idea. Already calling it a "Nuke Bowl". Yeppers, gotta get started on some of these..... Great JOB!!!

    I hope you don't mind, Brenda..

    I did some copy/paste magic and made your tute into a PDF file.

    Something tells me that I'll need to have a copy of the instructions with me when I make one!

    Again, THANK YOU for the tutorial!

    I have never seen one or heard of one before, so there must not be a bunch out there (since I seem to eat a lot--LOL).
    So thanks for introducing us to them and for showing us, so well, how to do them!
