Bowl Potholders Tutorial

I thought I would do a small tutorial on how I did those potholders for bowls.
I cute 2 pieces of fabric 10.5 square. 2 pieces of cotton batting or insul bright 10.5 square. If you want to use these in the microwave use cotton batting. Insul Bright CAN NOT be placed in the microwave.
place the batting on top of fabric and draw an X  sew the X. This gives is some stability.
Next measure the middle which was 5.25  then 1 inch on either side   then 2.5 inch down. You can see the markings in the first picture.  Fold and make a dart.  Do this on each side.. there will be 4 darts total.
after sewing the dart   trim
place rights sides together and sew around the edge leaving a small space for turning.
trim off the corners
turns right side out,  either hand stitch the opening or stitch all way around the edge.
I like this size  it can fit different style bowls

sorry some pictures are blurry  not sure if it is the camera or me. But you get the picture. :)
