Christmas Pot Holder

This is an easy sewing project, but the end result is adorable when paired with a matching ruffled hand towel.

First gather your supplies:

2 squares of outer fabric cut 8.5 X 8.5 inches

1 square of thermal lining 8.5 X 8.5 inches

Step 1:   Cut your fabric, and pin the fabric right sides together with the lining at the bottom.  Do NOT sandwich the lining between the red fabric!!!

Step 2:  Sew around the edges using a 1/2 inch seam allowance.   Sew on the fabric side.   The thermal lining will have a tendency to stretch and move so don’t be surprised when the back looks off, like mine did.    Be sure to leave a 2 inch opening on one side.

Step 3:  Clip corners and trim excess thermal, being sure not to cut through the outer fabric.

Step 4:  Turn right side out and Iron edges flat.

Step 5:  Top stitch close to outer edge to close opening.

Step 6:  Sew consecutive squares for a decorative look.
