Tutorial - potholders

These potholders are very decorative and easy to make. You decide what size you want, but mine are about 6" because that is the size of my square quilting ruler.

What you need:

Fabric, minimum 2 different pattern, but for a more dramatic effect use 4.
Fire resistant padding (I got mine from E-bay)

Cut 10 fabric squares (you need 5 for every potholder) and 2 padding squares.

Fold 8 of the squares in half and iron

Put two triangels back to back.

Put the third triangle on top of the square.

Lift up the triangle in the back and put it over the one on top.

Your square should look something like this.

Add the 4.th triangle.

Flipp over the corners on the top and bottom triangle

Put down the top triangle first

Put down the last corner and you should have a square that looks like this.

Take a piece of ribbon and stitch it to one of the corners.

Add the padding

Then put the final fabric square on top of that.

Sew all the way around and cut off the corners

Reverse the whole thing via the whole in the center og the 4 triangles in front.

That was quite a bit of work putting
your potholders together and they
turned out really nice.
Thanks so much for your visit to
my blog and your sweet comments. Yes,
I live in a tropical area of Florida
and the critters are abound! I even
have gators out back in the creek!
Hopefully spring will come to you
Happy Week

These potholders would make great gifts for new brides - you could tie them to the top of the present in the bride's colors.

I love this. I am always looking for my potholders. I think I'll make a few in bright colors, so I always have a few easy to find backups.
