|Microwave bowl holders|
I used Sheri's machine that was totally unfamiliar to me, so we had to stop the clock for a bit to address some technical problems (empty bobbin, broken needle, etc.) I managed to complete my bowl holder in the time allotted.

If you aren't familiar with cloth microwave bowl holders, they hold a bowl as its contents is being heated in the microwave. The edge or wings on the cloth bowl holder are used to lift the bowl safely out of the microwave. Sheri and I used this pattern.
When I got home, I looked for a pattern that did not require binding and found a free square pattern that can be made to fit a variety of bowl sizes. It was easy to make, and I like the wide wings for lifting. I used the remainder of the Asian fabric to make one for Marilyn, Brenda, Sue, and myself.
