I've had one of these for yrs. and wore it out - got it at a garage sale! Now I made a new one, made sure I had 100% cotton material, warm tater batting and never thought about the thread - just used what was on my serger. Had it a couple months and it caught fire - not where the thread was used on the seams, but just above centre. (I wasn't home - happened to hubby - he hasn't done a potato in micro since.)
I found potato material both for the red and white potato (they also had corn material).
I've used Rayon for emb on them. Also just use Coats&Clark all purpose to sew them up. Maybe hubby cooked it too long? I always wrap my tater in a damp paper towel too.
some patatoes here too :)
here they are,freebies

Did you click on the zip file download up at the top over the 2 tater files? I have made these for yrs & love them. And, yes, only use cotton!!
