Hi Caroline, I made this and it was great but please let everyone know that cotton thread MUST be used. I used polyester thread and tested it out in my microwave and ended up with a fire in the microwave! Of course I was able to put out the fire but it destroyed my microwave. Now I have to buy a new microwave. Ignorance is not bliss!!!! Anyway I am interested in buying the rule that you show in the photo making darts. Can you please tell me the name of the ruler and/or where I may purchase one? I do a lot of sewing clothes with darts in them and I think the ruler would be great to use. Thank you.

This was a great tutorial for such a useful product! I made a couple for my home and am thinking about making some to fit those microwave soup containers that are so tricky to get out of the microwave. The photo below shows how mine turned out. I posted this on my facebook page and had comments within moments! Again, thanks!

I am shocked that polyester thread would cause a fire?????
I made three of the bowls. On one of them, I didn't measure the darts correctly and the bowl doesn't look right. Take time to measure and not guess at it.
Happy New Year. Still curious about the polyester thread. Hmmmmmm! interesting and so sorry to hear it did so much damage.
