DIY PATTERN-SQ. MICRO POTATO BAG-TUTORIAL

The following blog is for a Microwave Bag.  You can cook potatoes, winter squash, corn on the cob, heat dinner rolls, tortillas, biscuits, etc.  This bag I have given over and over and my family wants more of them.
Below is how to make the pattern for this Microwave Bag
The following pictures are of the Square Microwave Bag that I make as a gift and use myself.
The finished bag will be 9"X10".
The pattern piece is 21"x10".  This includes 1/2" seam allowance


SUPPLIES NEEDED
Wax Paper
Permanent Marking Pen
Yard Stick
 Scissors
Cutting board  (is useful but not necessary)

Photobucket
MAKING THE PATTERNS


1.  Pull out a piece of wax paper longer than 21" so as to have room to work with.
2.  Mark out the measurements on this piece of wax paper of 21"x10"
3.  Mark the pattern with top and bottom for reference.
4.  Measure down at the top edge 2", and mark across the width with a permanent marker. Label this the fold line.
5.  Label your pattern for further reference.  Add name of pattern, seam allowance, fold line and anything else that will help you.

 6.  As you can see I have 1 1/2 marked, but found I liked the 2" better.


7.  You are now done with the Square Microwave  Bag Pattern.  Cut out your pattern.
