  3. Fold material leaving a 2 inch flap.
  4. Sew sides.
  5. Add a recipe card stating: Wash and dry potatoes. Wrap in a paper towel. Insert in quilted "envelope" and cook according to your microwave directions. "Don't poke or prod the taters!"
  6. This "envelope" is large enough to warm tortilla shells.

In addition to using a microfiber dusting mitt, be sure to wet the mitt and wring the excess water, out before microwaving your potato. This gives a more complete cooking and the potato will be fluffy.

No one has put how to make one. It just says it is fun using bits to make one. I need instructions on how to make and best materials to use.

I went to www.youtube.com and typed in potato baker bag and there is a "how to" video. I made one and it worked beautifully.
