    Thank you for this great tutorial! I saw this fabric bowl on a website the other day and was hoping someone would give instructions on how to make it. I plan to make some soon. Thanks again!

    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.
    Here is mine --thanks so much for tut

    Do you have to use 100% fabric and thread?

    I love this idea! It is a great way to use smaller pieces of batting leftover. I am also thinking of making some for gifts.Great tutorial. :thumbup:

    I saw some 50% bamboo:50% cotton batting today in the store, seems like this would be okay to use, wouldn't it?

    Thankyou... Just wanted you all to know that I did not originate this idea. I looked at one that was given to my girlfriend as a gift from someone a long time ago and I figured out my own way of making one myself!!!! I don't want to step on any toes if any one of you have done this yourself. ;) ;) ;)[/quote]

    I've never seen one like that before, so yours is an original, as far as I'm concerned!! :thumbup:

    This is my proto type. I always make a sample when trying something new. I'll be making a few more I really like these. I will be using thread to match the fabric on the next ones.

    Pin RIGHT sides together and be sure your tucks are in opposite directions to avoid the bulk. I pinned each tuck and also on all 4 corners. I forgot to add that you need to make a 3-1/2" opening so you can turn it right side out after sewing all around the edges.

    I have a question about this step. Aren't the four tucks taken on both the batting and the top fabric? How can they be in opposite directions? Call me stupid, but I just don't get this step.

    I just want to make sure I completely understand the purpose of these fabric "bowls" - you put your bowl of soup (or whatever) in the fabric bowl and microwave the whole thing together - regular bowl and fabric bowl???
