      I don't want to buy special batting for them, want to use my scraps of cotton batting . My LQS makes them with warm and natural.

          It appears to me to be a small pillow sham basically. Two fabrics and batting 11 x 21 made into a pillow sham.

          It looks like regular batting too.

            Yes, that is what it looks like to me as well, just a little pillow sham. Ain't nobody got time for all those little X's....I will FMQ mine with 100% cotton thread! LOL My LQS makes them with any old 100% cotton batting. That's what I am going to use.

              Just make sure that you are using Warm and Natural without skrim. The skrim is polyester.

                  I can't find the Tator batting anywhere, I'm going to use Warm and Natural 100% cotton batting.

                      Maybe this is a dumb question but what does the bag do exactly? Do the potatoes have a different texture or cook faster or something? I have cooked potatoes in the microwave for my entire adult life but never really thought to use a bag. I just stab them with a fork a couple times and throw them in.

                        I puncture holes in them, wrap them in press n seal, and make a couple of tiny holes in that.

                        I have heard of these bags catching on fire. Maybe it's because of what Karen said - the scrim?

                          When using a bag you don't poke holes in the potatoes. They stay moist and don't get as wrinkly.

                          The bags can catch fire. The instructions say don't leave them unattended, but who wants to stand at the microwave for 6 minutes while their potato cooks? One day using mine I smelled something "toasty" and sure enough, a tiny corner of the bag had scorched. It seems hubby or kid had popped some popcorn and didn't wipe the butter off the plate in the microwave. That is what caused the bag to start to burn. If food or something gets on the bags they need to be laundered.

                          The scrim is the webbing used to punch the cotton through to make the batting hold it's shape. It's pretty much a webbing type thing, not very thick, but needs to be a cotton scrim or no scrim for potato bags.
