They’re Great Gifts, Too!
Are you tired of the same old square pot holders? These round ones are super cute, and have a handy pocket for your hand.
The pocket makes them great gifts, too. Slide in a special recipe, tools or whatever else the recipient will appreciate to create a personalized gift.
Each set of two pot holders is made from two complementary fat quarters. Or, use 1/4″ yard of fabric for one. A third fabric is used for the binding. Shop your stash for charming combinations.
The finished potholders, designed by Melissa from Polka Dot Chair, are 8″ across. Insul-Bright batting provides the heat-proofing.
In addition to the free tutorial, you’ll need a template. It’s available once you sign up to Melissa’s mailing list. Or, create your own using a plate or other object that’s 8″ across. For the pocket, use the same circle to mark and cut a scoop out of the top.
Printable baking gift tags are also available by signing up to the list.
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!
