Go Retro or Modern with These Pretty Potholders
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.
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.
