Handmade Christmas: Quilted Pot Holders


A lady I know (who I've made cushions for in the past) bought some cute Aussie animal Christmas fabric and asked if I could use it to make a gift for her friend.  It was only a 1/2 meter so I put my thinking cap on as to what I should make. 

I know her friend (as an acquaintance), but I do know that she likes cooking and baking.  Something for the kitchen would be great and so when I had a little look on Pinterest, I found a really great tutorial & pattern for quilted pocket pot holders (link below).


To make these pot holders, I used a couple of Fat Quarters - the Jocelyn Proust print fabric and some coordinating solid dark blue, 2 layers of cotton batting and some pre-made bias binding.

That fabric is gorgeous. And these look like such a good idea, I might just need to make a couple! xx

I love your new pot holders. We need several new pairs here.
I have a pair of mitten style ones that must be 20 years old haha
