I’m not sure what to call it BUT you place your bowl of soup in the middle of the holder, use the flaps to carry it to the microwave, place it inside, nuke as desired and then use the flaps to retrieve it. If the soup boils over there will be no mess in the microwave and no burned fingers! When you have finished eating (and if you slopped) you just throw the holder into the wash!
Here’s how to make one…
1. Take TWO 10” squares of coordinating fabric and two squares of COTTON batting. (use ONLY Cotton)
2. Place the batting on the back of each of the squares of fabric and stitch an X from corner to corner on each.
3. Draw the darts on the batting side. Find the middle of each side and draw your 3” wide by 3” long darts and stitch.
Trim darts and press open.
4, Sandwich the right sides together and match up the points. Stitch all around using 1/4” seam allowance. Leave a 3” opening to turn to the right side. Clip corners before turning and trim as much of the batting as possible.
Now turn to the right side and use something pointy to get those tabs to stick out. Press.
5. Slip stitch the opening and topstitch all around.
Wouldn’t this make the perfect Christmas gift?!
Thanks, Carol!! Great Toot!!
