    My Hot Bowl holders

    I didnt take a pic of each step as it is not needed,,,and I hope this works..

    SUPPLIES...Two 10 inch squares of main fabric
    Two 9 inch squares batting (warm and natural is safe in microwaves)
    Two batting circles cut around cd or dvd (this is just to add a bit more substance to bowl)
    Ruler
    If you dont have this ruler,make a mark 1 inch on each side of line and connect...I dont know how to add photos with text between so I will just post the pics for your reference,,,I hope this will work for you..Draw cross lines five inches from edges of fabric and draw center using disk as guide...quilt as desired...sew in darts and trim to reduce bulk...following pics,,,stack the two halves right side together and sew around,leaving an opening to turn.Turn and poke out corners,,,top stitch ,closing opening. You are done!

    Great tute! Just one question ... there isn't a picture of layering and sewing. Am I correct in assuming you just put right sides together, stitch, leave opening for turning, clip corners, turn right side out, close opening and top stitch all around?

    I always love your projects ... you are a very talented lady!

    Well your tag line quote from your Grandma....Your gift to us was great pictures and easily understood directions! Thank-you so much!!!

    Just one question someone mentioned in another thread that W&N has some polyester fibers and not to use it for Microwaves. I assume you have used and find the W&N to work well?

    I was just about to amend my stupidity! I guess I read too fast. Can I blame it on my injured back and pain meds??? Do you forgive me??

    That looks like a great idea. I'll have to make some up. Some on my guild sisters make mini mitts, about 4" in diameter, but this looks better for snacking on your lap, which I do these days.

    to add text between pics just add space between the pics. when you upload your first pic hit the returpen key a couple of times to add the space, then type your words, return key a couple of times, upload next pic, etc.

    there is also another tute for these microwave bowl holders. great minds think alike.

    W & N has 20% poly. after reading about mishaps with potato bakers, I would be on the safe side and buy
    100% cotton batt. I buy pre-packaged all cotton batt & cut it up. coupons at JoAnns.
    Everyone loves these things ! even the guys like their own in guy fabrics.

    I buy 100% cotton and use only cotton thread when I make these. They are a great small gift for friends.
    Also I make mine 12" square. glenda
