Bowl Buddies

Over the past few years I have seen a number of people make 'bowl buddies' for friends and family. These are a shaped pot holder that goes into the microwave with the bowl so removal of hot foods can easily be removed without burning the hands.

I wanted to make these as a gift for Christmas so set about looking for instructions. The best I found were at http://www.lisalewiskoster.com/2013/12/microwave-bowl-potholders.html.

I purchased some microwave-safe batting - like that used for making 'potato bags' and selected two sets of complimentary fabrics. The recipient has two sizes of bowls for use in her microwave so I custom fit two sizes of bowl buddies.

I cut the batting 3/4 inch smaller than the fabric to keep the edges from being too bulky at the end. I did the quilting (the first step in the process) with a medium-sized meander.

The final products are reversible.

This is the smaller one 'in use':

I cut up the rest of the batting while I was at it and cut enough of these fabrics to make 3 more of each color combination. All of the quilting has been done on them and I set them aside so I can make them whatever size is needed on short notice.
