Does anyone know where I can get an emb design of Potatoe/potatoes to sew on a bag

to cook in the microwave? I have looked for
material, but haven't found any potatoes.
Thanks Maureen

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.

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!!

Be careful to use only 100% cotton in microwave bags. The poly threads and others catch fire. Good luck!

Thanks for telling me about cotton thread.
I'll see what I have. I have cotton batting and material. Maureen
