They Make Wonderful Gifts!

Pull out a pretty combination of scraps for these charming potholders. They’re fun, attractive, and can have either a modern or retro vibe depending on the fabrics you choose. Make some for yourself and others to give, as these make lovely gifts.

Squares of 2″ fabric are pieced, layered, quilted, and then cut into potholder shapes so the squares are on point. The backs and insides of the potholders are made from larger pieces of coordinating prints. Bias tape or strips cut from fabric are used for binding and are super simple to apply.

Retro Potholders Pattern

Insul-Bright and batting make them sturdy and heatproof. Eyelets and leather cords were added by the designer for hanging, although you can substitute other sturdy cords or ribbons.

The completed potholders, from Arabesque Scissors, are 9¾” x 7¾”. Learn more here.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
