We sent these out with our Christmas cards this year for a little something extra to the ones we love!  You can embroider, applique, do all kind of things as long as you stay away from synthetics and metallics, which wont work well in the microwave!  Have fun...

Potato Bag Instructions for Use...

Wash and dry your potato. DO NOT PRICK THE POTATO! Wrap the potato in a paper towel and place it in the bag. Microwave according to your microwave instructions.  Let the bag air dry for the next use.  Once the bag begins to look soiled, wash and dry, but do NOT use downy on your bag, for obvious reasons!  =)
