How frustrating and disappointing!!!!!Aghhhhhhh! Maybe forget the snaps and iron and sew it closed.
Oh well!! sometimes the old ways are the best ways... You could probably sew up the seams and still use it as a hot mat. Sorry it did not work The other one you did came out great though,
I can see what you mean about being able to turn it right side out if you have torn it trying to do it.
Perhaps try another one with a thinner batting and see if it makes a difference may not be as thick and hard to turn. You obviously know not to put in microwave as it has snaps on the corners, So that part isn't an issue. If all else fails contact the digitizer and ask what supplies were used in the one on the site.
I know it drives me mad when I can't do something that I have seen.
I think if you made this design with everything 100% cotton, even the thread, then you could use it in the microwave.
Just sew the tips together with cotton thread.
I think i could do it hugs
I make these all the time for the micro. 2 10 inch squares, 100 % cotton battibg, and 100% cotton thread. Make 4 darts and sew together. Use in micro for up to 3 min. And patterns are free!!
YES I SAW THEM BUT I WANTED TO TRY ITH
Oh My!!!! Still have to try one????
I am of no help. I say sleep on it. I solve many things in my sleep!
I agree - There is no way I want a hot bowl holder that I can not put the cold bowl in and then microwave the set. I would do it the old fashioned way before I would give up the ability to microwave it. Here potatoes are cooked in pockets that are also used to warm rolls, and tortillas. All being microwaved while containing the food. 100% cotton and you can microwave it. Ya, the Cam snaps and air points are cute. I would rather stitch the points were she snaps them and be able to microwave it.
thanks for your nice comment
What a shame...what good is this type of bowl if it cannot be put in the microwave....the whole point is to be able to take your bowl out of the microwave when it is hot and not burn your fingers. Glad you made some that really worked...sometimes ITH is not always the best option...
i see that lol
I find them so easy just to sew and not use the embroidery machine. I made at least 20 of them.
thanks will go see hugs
