Quilt-As-You-Go Method is a Great Use of Scrappy Strips!

It seems like every kitchen has at least one pot or pan with a non-insulated handle. In many cases they aren’t supposed to get hot but they do, which we’re reminded of every time we unthinkingly grab the handle with our bare hand.

This little potholder is built to slide over the handle, protecting your fingers from burns. The instructions from Samelia’s Mum show you how to measure the pot’s handle to make the potholder fit just right.

Pot Holder Pocket Tutorial

If the handle on your pan gets especially hot, you may want to include some Insul-Bright batting for extra heat proofing.

Thin strips of scrap fabric can be used in this project. Since it’s a quilt-as-you-go method each slide-on potholder will finish up very quickly. This would be a welcome gift for anyone you know who often uses cookware with non-insulated handles.

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!
