Here's another project that I've been meaning to get to for some time now. They seem to be all the rage at our quilt shop. Before Christmas EVERYONE was making them. I kept forgetting to bring a pattern home so I just winged it. Turns out the one at the shop isn't even top stitched at the opening so I guess I added some flair!
I was pleasantly surprised that the baked potato bag actually produced a lovely potato. It also took me less than 10 minutes to make. I had a yard of potato fabric so I whipped up 8 of them. One word of caution; be sure to use an all cotton or all polyester batting...nothing metallic. I've heard of some people using insul-brite and starting fires.
I wrapped my two unpricked potatoes in paper toweling and after 6 minutes they just wern't quite done. It seems 10 minutes was perfect for our microwave. They were fabulous!! They were steamed and cooked all the way to their centers. I went to squeeze it open and it just exploded, it didn't just "chunk" like they normally do.
