How to Make a Pot Holder: Easy Sew Gift Idea!
This simple sewing project is great for using up scrap fabric and a good starting project for beginner quilters.
– Scrap fabric in strips and one focus scrap of fabric for the center.
– 8″ x 8″ piece of backing fabric
– 8″ x 8″ piece of quilt batting
– Double-fold bias tape
Take the batting and insul bright if you are using it and layer it on top of each other. Use the scrap fabric and ‘quilt-as-we-go’. Then, take the focus scrap.
It can be an abstract print or a solid but I tend to use an image.
What is a focus scrap?
Next, take a background scrap of a coordinating color that is approximately the same length as the top side of your focus scrap.
Finger press the seam and top stitch with a 3 stitch length on the scrap you just added.
Repeat the same steps as above now on the right-hand side of your focus scrap and the scrap you just added.
