Note: This pattern was originally called the Microwave Bowl Holder, but has been changed to the “Insulated Bowl Holder”. It is the same pattern, the only change is the name and the suggestion to not cook food with it in the microwave to avoid any risk of fire. Instead carefully slip the hot bowl into the holder to protect your hands. These are also very popular to hold cold dishes as well. Enjoy!
Here’s the original blog that refers to the Microwave Bowl Holders…
No more burned fingers from hot bowls in your microwave!!!
I am pleased to announce my latest pattern – a pattern for Microwave Bowl Holders. No more burned fingers from hot bowls in the microwave! They also work great to insulate your hands from a cold dish of ice cream.
It is a fun pattern to make and instructions are included for 3 sizes: Small (fits average size cereal bowl), Medium (fits large soup bowl); and Large (fits 9-10″ bowl).
They stack and store easily and are very handy in the kitchen.
The pattern includes detailed instructions and illustrations that guide you through easy construction. You can make one from a fat quarter of fabric or several from a yard. You’ll be amazed at how quickly these holders come together and find yourself making several for yourself as well as family friends. And…. they are a GREAT gift idea!!!
In addition, they are easy to personalize, based on your fabric selections, and are reversible!
One of my customers told me that she uses one every night to hold her cold dish of ice cream – another great idea!
The pattern is available online at Craftsy as well as locally, here in Boise, at the Quilt Crossing.
Last but not least, they would also be a wonderful hostess gift during the holidays.
I hope you will try them out and, if you do, share some photos of your completed holders as I love to see completed projects from my patterns.
Hope you are enjoying this “BLACK FRIDAY”…
