2 – 9 /2 inch squares of fabric
1 – 9 1/2 inch square of Insulbright heat resistant material. It is available at Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s and Wal-Mart. ( three layers of cotton batting can be used. That is how Granny made them back in the day.)
A small piece or ribbon or bias tape (approximately 4 inches)
Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
Knitting needle or wooden spoon
Step 4. Gently push and turn the piece, until the batting is in the center and both fabric pieces are turned right side out on the top and bottom. Step 5. Using knitting needle or wooden spoon handle, push out the corners of your potholder.
Step 6. Center the ribbon or bias tape hanger in the gap, fold in seam allowance and top stitch with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Step 7. Quilt your potholder. You can use straight lines or any design you can think up. I stitched along the seams of the pieces in the top block.Step 8. Trim threads.
You now have a potholder to use or give as a gift.
