easy sewing project on point quilt quilting

Two weekend sewing projects video tutorial

Let’s get ready for winter with this patchwork and milky infinity scarf.

You may find sewing minky is a bit tricky but I used lots of pins to stop the piece from moving and it was fine. All imperfections are hidden by the fur so it’s very forgiving to work with too.

Choose a thick minky fabric so it feels more wintery.

I used Michael Miller fabrics and minky to make this infinity scarf.

The second project is one of my favourite items: a microwave/ice cream bowl. If you haven’t made a microwave bowl yet, have a go. It’ll become one of the most useful things in the kitchen overnight.

A note on materials

Use 100% cotton for fabric, batting and thread. I have a number of bowls and I’ve used them many times and none of them has caught fire. They don’t even get hot. You’ll notice the fabric I used is metallic but it’s actually plastic. I’ve tested out and it works fine, just as many plastics are fine in the microwave.

If you don’t trust your batting, you can use Wrap-N-Zap which is designed for microwave use.

  1. Hello Teresa,

    Thank you for your easy to understand videos. I just watched the tutorial for a microwave bowl holder. I will be definitely making these this weekend. I’m tired of jostling hot bowl directly from the microwave. My girls will like this for their morning oatmeal also.

    Have a nice week, Beth (near Montreal Canada) ________________________________
