It’s An Oven Mitt, Too!
Tone on tone prints are perfect for this charming watermelon potholder. The color variations mimic those of a ripe watermelon, making this perfect for your summer kitchen.
There’s a pocket to slide your hand into so it can also be used as an oven mitt. Or flip it over and use it for a mug rug or hot pad. Just be sure to add a layer or two of Insul-Bright batting for heat proofing.
This is a super easy project that will go together quickly. Permanent marker is used for the seeds, further simplifying the project.
The finished pot holder, from A Beautiful Mess, is 8″ across.
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!
