One of our goals was to design patterns with purpose - useable items for home that would also be great gifts. Our Micro-Safe Hot Holders fulfill that purpose perfectly! You know how hot your bowl gets when you heat up soup or pasta for more than one minute? Then you burn your fingers grabbing the dish out of the door and carrying it to your counter or plate? No more! When you use these bowls you can safely take out your dishes without fear of burned fingers. The bowls come in three different sizes - ramekin, cereal bowl and casserole sized. Here is the most important thing about these bowls: every item you use to make them must be 100% cotton! The thread, fabric, bias tape and batting - if it isn't 100% cotton you can end up with a fiery mess. No one wants that. Another safety tip: never put in the cotton bowls on their own and microwave. Without the humidity of food heating up, the fabric will burn. (I'm not entirely sure why you would just microwave the cotton bowls on their own, but now you know not to.) Because the micro-safe bowls are made with 100% cotton batting, they aren't super firm. We thought you might want to create a fabric bowl that is just decoration, so we included directions for making a stiffer bowl in the large size. For this size you will use Timtex instead of batting. Just remember, this version doesn't go in the microwave! So, want to save your burned hands and win a copy of the Micro-Safe Hot Holders for yourself? This contest is now closed.
