how to sew… potholders


with the leftover fabric from my kitchen curtain I wanted to make something else for the kitchen. I had 4 rows of flowers left, so I thought why not cut them into squares and make some potholders. Here are the few steps to make your own:

for 2 potholders I cut 4 squares of the fabric and 4 squares of the interlining. I used Thermolam, an interlining that is heat-resistant. Best ask in your fabric/craft store for something similar.

then I placed them on top of each other, in the middle the fabric right sides facing each other and outside one layer of interlining on each side

then I sewed around and left a few cm open, cut the seam allowance at the corners and then turned it through that hole

now I sewed all around close to the edge and then in between the flowers


my finished potholders!
