Hot Bowl Tute ( hope this works)
Caroline1947 Send a Message
I hope I got the pics in sequence,,,if not,I think you can decipher it!!
I use warm and natural batting as it can safely be put in the microwave

Step one,,,cut two 10 inch squares of main fabric
two 9 inch squares of batting
2 circles cut around a cd or dvd (this is just to add a bit more substance to bowl,,,cd helps you center it)
Rulers,,(if you dont have this ruler,make a mark one inch to each side of center and connect

Draw cross lines 5 inches from edges of fabric and center and draw circle

quilt as desired

sew darts and trim to reduce bulk
Nest halves together and sew around leaving an opening to turn,,,

turn,,,poke out corners and top stitch ,closing opening...

Caroline, You are a genius. I love this idea. A bowl shaped pot holder is the coolest thing I have seen in a long time. And to be able to use it in microwave makes it doubly useful. No more burned fingers or spilling with a reg sq potholder.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. This will become my DH's best friend. He loves to eat in front of the tv in an easy chair when he is not feeling well. This will help with hot bowls of soup or hot cereal, or those cold bowls of ice cream. Love you lady. What a brilliant inspiration. I can see quilters all over the place whipping up some of these. Great gift idea anyone can use.

Hugs, love and God's blessings, Hope you feel better today. Thanks for a great tutorial. (This is much better than the candy dish one I saw.) Prayers for you today and always. Shirley Mae

Hi. I appreciate your tutorial for this and I am eager to make some.

When you say to nest the halves together and sew, which way would you do that? With the batting side out on one side...? I don't want to have to pull this apart after sewing it all. that's so disappointing. Thank you!

Laura, did you figure it out? I see that you never got an answer. You are correct, btw. After quilting, to sew the front and the back together, place fabrics right sides together with batting on the outside and sew around the edges leaving an opening to turn it right side out. Clip the corners and turn it, then stitch the opening closed by hand or machine.

This is the pattern I was looking for. I am adding this to my "To Do List"

Hi Caroline, I made this and it was great but please let everyone know that cotton thread MUST be used. I used polyester thread and tested it out in my microwave and ended up with a fire in the microwave! Of course I was able to put out the fire but it destroyed my microwave. Now I have to buy a new microwave. Ignorance is not bliss!!!! Anyway I am interested in buying the rule that you show in the photo making darts. Can you please tell me the name of the ruler and/or where I may purchase one? I do a lot of sewing clothes with darts in them and I think the ruler would be great to use. Thank you.
