Do you ever burn your hands taking a hot bowl out of the microwave? Me too! I touch it lightly, decide its okay, then make it about half way across the kitchen before I can't decide which counter is closer and nearly drop the bowl.
Thankfully, over the weekend my aunt gave me a set of hot pad bowls. I had never heard of them before but now I can't imagine using the microwave without them. My aunt used a pattern similar to this one I found at 2 little hooligans. It is very important to use all cotton material, batting, and thread for this project. Happy nuking!
