    Sew clever and useful. I can see me making several of these. I get so frustrated trying to take a hot bowl out of the microwave with potholders and the mess that incurs. I usuallly use a hand towel. This will be so much better.

    How cool....I love this...
    I always put a hot pad or a folded up towel under my bowl.
    And holiday prints...great idea!

    Wondering mind has got to know -- lol
    You probably could use the flannel... and yes make sure it is layered for thickness and be sure to wash the flannel first for shrinkage. I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to use the spray adehesive though.

    Thanks for the tute. Very easy to follow. I just finished the 12" using jalapeno pepper fabric and it turned out great.

    Here's mine! This is such a great idea! I have a small group of women who want to learn to quilt. This is the perfect beginners project! I quilted along the diagonals and from side to side at the middle--that will give my beginners good lines to follow for turning corners, and making the darts.
    THANKS!

    Thank you so much for your great tutorial. I also see this item as a great place to practice my FMQing. Twelve inches squared is a wonderful size to for practice. :thumbup:

    Anyone have ideas as to what these might sell for at a craft show? I know I could never get the suggested 3X the cost of materials.

    I'm making some for a local quilt show to sell at our guild table. I'm using Moda 10" layer cake squares, No scrim cotton batting and all cotton thread with decorative stitches around the edges. I'm selling them in packages of four, $35 a package. My DD took one to work to use for heating up her lunch bowl and brought me orders for 8 packages. I told her to tell the people to come to the quilt show and buy them. I don't have time to fill orders. She works in a hospital and 'gotta have this' travels like wild fire among the staff. I'll post some pics later.

    Love your answer. It reminded me I was in a 10.5" block swap not long ago... I can use those. Your price seems right for a set of four. Thanks Bella.
