Pot Holder

Slanted PotholderThere are some items that no longer seems to fit with their name.  Take for example the glove compartment.  I'm sure, at some point, it actually was used to store gloves, but, at least for me, it seems more of a catchall for whatever paperwork happens to be floating around in my car.  We also have the pot holder.  Technically, it's not actually holding a pot.  I'm holding the pot and it's merely sandwiched between the two.  I offer a proposition that we change the name of the Pot Holder to Hand Saver, because it deserves more honor for the service it provides us.

In honor of the Pot Holder aka Hand Saver, we have the pattern and video tutorial so you can make your own and pay your own tribute to it.  Make one or make a lot and hand them out as gifts.   In turn, you'll become sort of a hand saver as well.

Also check out half apron and produce bag, each have a video tutorial and pattern.

    One thing you can do is layer everything, quilt it, and then cut out the pot holder shape using the pattern. That should get it perfect. 🙂

    I have trouble keeping all the edges even; i.e., the batting & fleece stick out. I have tried trimming it back. Any suggestions?

    I would hand baste the layers in place before stitching with the machine. You can also use a basting spray to hold the layers together which might help

    Without a walking foot how do you prevent all of the layers from shifting? Even with a lot of pins and a tight basting around as soon as I do my first quilt line the bottom fabric piece moves up to 1/2″ away from the top fabric. Very frustrating!
