Tortilla Warmers

These are SO. MUCH. FUN to use! Right now we have two, one for the small corn tortillas, and a larger one (that matches the oven mitt) for flour tortillas. I just put a few tortillas in the warmer, put it in the microwave for about 20 seconds, and the tortillas come out very warm and soft. I used to wrap them in paper towels and put them in the microwave, but they always came out kind of dry around the edges. Then I found a tutorial on allfreesewing.com for cloth tortilla warmers, and I never looked back! Mine are very similar to the ones they had, but I do the binding differently, which to me is a lot easier. Instead of making it all one piece around the entire warmer, I do one piece around the top half of one side and another binding around both pieces. Here’s where the original tutorial can be found, or you can search for tortilla cozy tutorials on allfreesewing.com, if you’d like to make your own. I don’t have anything like Etsy – I just sell these locally (craft sales, etc) to raise money for missions. PLUS – I thoroughly enjoy using them myself!! I’ve been told lately that I’ve been underselling my stuff, so I reckon I should update these pages…do you think $10 (plus shipping) for the large one and $5 for the small one is too much, too little, just right?? I can make these for you if you’d like one and don’t want to make it yourself.

Anyway, here are just a few of the many, many warmers I’ve made over the last few years.

    • me too (well, not the chili peppers so much) – and I was AMAZED at how well these little fellers do warming tortillas in the microwave. They may be what I give for Christmas gifts this year! 🙂 I was just over checking out your blog – double-yum!!!

    • Oh, I’m so glad you like these. I just made another one last week, from the scraps of others. I used a yellow fabric for the lining this time, not the usual white. I’m sure you can do this. The hardest part, for me, is getting the binding right where the flaps are.

      • Yup. I’m sure you’re right. But working with the bindings would be good practice for me. It’s the finesse – or botching – of those details that makes or breaks a handmade garment. I love handmade clothes, but I don’t want to look too homemade… While I’m eating my stylish tortillas!

        • Ha! I love it – stylish tortillas. Never thought of that. Did you make one yet? Uhm…a tortilla warmer, that is – not a stylish tortilla. Of course, you could make that too. 😆
