A little finish for Friday

Just one little finish today ~ not quilting exactly, but it involves the use of my sewing machine!   

I tried out a new tutorial to make some last-minute gifts ~ microwaveable fabric bowls by Kathy at Tamarack Shack.  Kathy defines these as "a hot pad that allows you to take a hot bowl right out of the microwave without burning your hands!"  Here are a couple of pics from her tutorial:

I made my first set (just the 8" and the 10" for now) out of some nautical/beachy fabrics.  The tutorial is well written, with lots of photos ~ easy to follow ~ and I LOVE the way they turned out!  The only change I made was to stitch across the diagonals on each side.

As you can see, they're also reversible ~ bonus!

Linking up with Gingersnaps Quilts for TGIFF and crazy mom quilts for Finish It Up Friday.


  1. Beautiful bowls what a great idea. Thanks for sharing. Marie

  2. Love your fabric choices, Georgi! Great job! Those would make some very sweet Christmas gifts.

  3. Those are cute! I've never seen that done before.

  4. These turned out really neat. I may have to keep them in mind for gifts next year. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
