Bowl Hotpad Protector

     Three weeks ago I met Sandy who was giving a "bowl hotpad protector" to my friend Barb as a late Christmas gift. Sandy told us about a youtube video which gives excellent directions. So, I thought I would provide one link below for your perusal.


     The hotpad is to protect one's hands from a hot bowl after microwaving. In fact Sandy has made the 10", 12" and 15" sizes, if I recall correctly, and given them as sets in varying combinations. Since I don't use a microwave I still wanted to give the project a try to protect my hands from a hot bowl of soup, beans or stew.

     I am pleased at how my first 10" protector has turned out - you can see the photos with "one" reversible holder and two different bowls that I have in my cupboard.

If you make one, I hope you will like it as much. Enjoy!

What a great idea!! Now why didn't I think of that-- I'm always trying to nestle it in a towel or sit it in a bigger bowl!! These would make such great gifts!

Love
Vicki

Had to try this one, Karen, as you knew I would! Was fun to make and even better to use. Works perfectly and definitely makes hoisting those hot bowls in and out of the microwave easier and safer. Thanks for passing on a great idea! Definitely agree that this will is a great idea for a gift.
