It Will be Great in Any Color Palette!

This charming pot holder is a great project for using up leftover 2 1/2″ squares. Start with squares from four prints and finish it off with a complementary binding.

While it was designed for Christmas, the pot holder will be lovely in fabrics for any season and in any color palette. Play with goodies from your stash to design your own.

Patchwork Potholder Tutorial

Use a spool to mark the rounded corners and bind with a bias strip. It could also be turned instead of bound. Layer it with the front facing up, then the back facing down and the batting on top. Sew around the outside edges leaving a space for turning. Top stitching would be a lovely finishing touch.

However you choose to construct yours, be sure to use a layer of Insul-Bright batting for heat proofing.

The completed pot holder, as designed by Minki Kim for We All Sew, is 9″ square.

We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
