    This is a great project. I gives me squares to practice FMQ without the possibility of ruining a quilt and the squares have a useful purpose. I hate wasting fabric 1on practice that doesn't have a future. Christmas, here I come!

    Yup... That's how it works, without having to fumble with hot pads!

    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
    Fabulous job mtspools....and I like your fabric choices too. Aren't they just so much FUN to make?

    Great Idea! I guess I better get busy and start making my Christmas gifts. There is never enough hours in the day to get my bucket list filled.

    "Oh" Denice, I love that fabric you used for your practice one. I'm so glad some of you were able to figure this out so quickly Great job!

    Well I just warmed up leftover soup in my new "bowl pot holder" and it worked like a charm. Told my husband this is not a normal pot holder and explained what it was to him. He's now using it to warm up a bowl of chili! I see more in my future. Thank you again for a great tutorial.

    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 don't mind at All.... this is Fabulous and will be very helpful for those that need instructions (like me) next to there sewing machine.
    Thank you!

    Wasn't sure what to think when I read, "Microwave Fabric Bowls"...But after seeing your Tute, that's pretty cool. We always use pot holders under our bowls, just might have to try this one day. :thumbup:

    Great idea and tutorial. I like everyone else am planning on making some of these. I love soup and like it hot, but the bowls come out way to hot. These should work great. Might try one tonight. Thanks to the person who made I PDF out of it too!

    You did a wonderful job with the tutorial. I bookmarked it as I would like to make some. These would be great for any kind of bowl. I have a serving bowl that I always use and say bad words with each time I bring to the table...........you have solved the problem.....not only that these will help keep the food warm along with keeping our hands cool. :lol: :lol:
