Pot Holders

Posted by HUSQVARNA VIKING®
Make a pot holder to give away instead of bringing a flower to the dinner party. It is lovely, personal and will last much longer. Find our instructions below for three different pot holders to make in no time!


Towel Pot Holder

You will need:
Preparations
Start by cutting out the back piece (9¾ x 9¾" (25x25cm)), front piece (8½ x 8½"(21x21cm)) and batting (8½ x 8½" (21x21cm)). If you have a striped towel make sure that the stripes on the front match the stripes on the back.

Assemble
Take the larger piece and place it on a flat surface, wrong side up. Place the batting on top of the back piece, in the center. Place the front piece ontop of the batting right side up. Make sure that the stripes on the back and front piece line up.

Press the backing fabric under 1/2" twice and fold over to the front of the potholder.

Snap on the Left Edge Top Stitch Foot. Stitch together using a straight stitch to bind your pot holder.

Form a loop with the ribbon and stitch it to one of the corners of the pot holder.
