My kitchen has white cupboards, walls and stove top. I wanted to add some color and accessorize my oven with some fun color and prints. To start I made pot holders. You don’t need much fabric for this project, fat quarters work great to make these. You can even use fleece, an old pot holder, or a small piece of batting to line this cute and practical kitchen accessory!

Start with 4 pieces of fabric that are 6″ by 8″, and 2-4 pieces of an inside insulator material. I used 2 pieces of fleece. With RIGHT sides together sew around 3 sides leaving a small side open for turning.

After sewing around the edges, turn you pouch so your pattern is facing out. Lay down and straighten your insulator material inside.

Next press the open seems inside your pouch so there are no raw edges. You can either sew this seem shut now, or after you’ve quilted your this side of the pot holder.  I just did straight lines, be creative, quilt how’d you like.

Now for the top 2 flaps of the pot holder, repeat above stops with fabric pieces 4″ by 6″ and line, quilt and finish the edges. Make a loop to hang your pot holder by cutting a piece of fabric 1″ by 3″ and sew so right sides are out and there is a pretty seam.

I’d suggest sewing the loop to the large quilted piece first, before sewing on the small flaps. Sew the loop to a corner on a diagonal. After the loop is attached all that’s left if sewing on the top flaps so the pot holder stays on. Just match edges so the small flaps cover the bottom and top half.
