Becky from Patchwork Posse shows how to make a microwave bowl potholder. Instead of trying to wrap a flat potholder around a hot bowl to grab it up, this quilted potholder is shaped to fit around the bowl and can actually go into the microwave with your bowl. When the timer goes off, you can pick it up by the little handles on the sides to remove the bowl from your microwave with no burned hands.
