DIY Tortilla Warmer Tutorial

Materials to make a Fabric Tortilla Warmer

  • 100% cotton fabric, outside layer
  • 100% cotton fabric, inside layer (choose something without a print/color, because this is the layer that touches food)
  • 100% natural cotton batting (Pellon makes something called Wrap-N-Zap that’s microwave safe)
  • 100% cotton 1-inch double fold bias tape
  • 100% cotton thread
  • Sewing machine

You can use fat quarters of fabrics for this project along with a small piece of batting, or scraps that are about 12″ x 12″ square. Be sure to customize the size based on your favorite tortilla diameter. Consider using it for pita or flatbread too!
