Easy Handmade Gifts: Microwave Bowl Potholders

I spend a lot of time online because of my role inside Quiltmaker, but I wasn’t familiar with microwave bowl potholders until someone brought them to my quilt group recently. What a great idea!

No more juggling hot soup. No more spilled food. No more toasty fingers! Think of these as bowl cozies, insulators or carriers. Whatever you call them, they work!

These potholders for bowls in the microwave are easy to make, and its fun to use your prettiest quilting fabrics to give them personality. I’m going to create some for easy homemade gifts, and Ill choose fabrics I think each recipient will love. The design is very forgiving which makes the project easy, fast and fun.

Please accept our apologies. We have removed the instructions for this project as a courtesy to some of our followers who sell this pattern, including Quiltmakers designer friend Sue Marsh at Whistlepig Creek. However, there are many great free tutorials online if you’d like to make microwave bowl potholders.
