Q&A with yarnovermatter

celittle1686712 asked:
Where do I get this pattern?
yarnovermatter answered:
I learned how in a live class at my friend's craft shop, but it's a pretty popular pattern. There are several patterns (search "bowl cozy") here on Craftsy, & lots of YouTube videos, but first you might check out this photo-tutorial from the old Craftsy Blog: https://www.craftsy.com/quilting/article/quilted-bowl/ It looks very similar to what I do, except that I've never tried trimming off the corners -- I like the crisp, pointy look! Just remember to use all 100% cotton (fabric, batting, thread), and HAVE FUN! :)
Murphycak3394730 asked:
Can you put 100% cotton batting in the microwave
yarnovermatter answered:
Yes! That's why it needs to be 100% cotton; any polyester would melt/burn. Before I gift my cozies, I always test them by heating in the microwave with a bowl of water for five minutes (it boils), and I've never had any problems.
