  1. Just wanted to say “thank you for this free pattern” I have a friend with MS and she holds her bowl in her hands so she can eat without assistance. Sometimes the bowls too hot to handle so she has to wait for it to cool. This is a perfect idea for her.

  2. Thank you for the FREE pattern I was looking for. Seems like I always have to spend money to get a pattern, and I appreciate a free one once in a while. Thank you again!

  3. This is a wonderful idea & wonderfully clear & easy to follow pattern. I sewed sets of four for several friends this past Christmas. Everyone loved them!

  4. Dear Yvette:
    Thank you so very much for this pattern. I saw a friend of mine who had these and I fell in love with them, but didn’t know how to go about making them. This pattern is fabulous — such easy instructions to read.

  5. I see that you have to use cotton on all supplies. I have Coats Cotton, 100% Mercerized Cotton thread. Not sure what the “mercerized” is. But it does say 100% Cotton. Will this work?
    Thank you!

  6. What type of batting do you use? I bought the wrap n zap type and I was told to wash and dry all material first because of shrinkage. Well when I washed the batting it fell apart. I am out $20

    1. Hi Debbie, our local quilt shop carries a 100% batting with no scrim, but the wrap n zap would be fine too. It never dawned on me to prewash all the material first, the shrinkage would have been minimal, so it didn’t matter to me. I’m really sorry that it all fell apart, that takes the fun out of this project.
