Baked Potato in a Bag


Serena from Embroidery Treasures has instructions on how to make a bag for baking perfect fluffy potatoes in the microwave. When I contact Serena about featuring her product, she asked to wait a couple of days while she created the embroidery design files that can be used on the bag. How sweet is that, thanks Serena!

Serena has a blog, and Embroidery Treasures is listed in the Quilt Shop Locator.

    Another website had a similar item and removed it from the site because the bag could burn in the microwave. How do you choose the fabric so it will not burn?

    I don’t know, does anyone have any experience with this?

    I would think 100% cotton quilter’s fabric (washed of course) would have been fine. I haven’t personally tried it yet.

    You have to use the cotton batting, the polyester batting will burn. I was going to make this and haven’t had time, so … I questioned all those who make them. It is the flat cotton batting.

    Hi ladies!

    The key is to use 100% cotton fabrics with 100% cotton batting. The poly batting can cause some problems. I haven’t had any trouble heating in the microwave for 3-5 minutes.

    Enjoy! :)

  5. I was looking for instructions for how to bake a potato in the microwave. Your recipe was the best. Thanks for reminding us that a simple thing done well is a little bit of heaven.

    I found out my wife has never had a potoato cooked in the oven without being wrapped in tinfoil – thus never a crispy skin llike we had last night.

    Great information, keep posting!

    You use the Warm and Natural Cotton Batting, and It has to be 100% cotton thread, in coats and clark it is the Yellow spools. It also has to be 100% cotton, anything else will burn.

    Hope this is helpful :D

    Also. you don’t poke holes in the potato, wash it, leave it wet, and even put the bad under the water, and throw it in the microwave for 12 min.
