So here's the deal.... what you'll need and *what you'll get ( * finished pot holder upper right side of pic below. )
To make 1 super functional pot holder... as seen below you will need:
3 10" squares of a novelty fabric or at least matching fabric. (2 of which are folded over right side out triangle shapes of pot fabric in the picture below)
2 10" squares of contrasting fabric ( exampled by triangle -folded black below)
2 10" squares of mostly or all cotton batting
1 10" square of thermal isulated material PLUS 1 10" square of mostly or all cotton batting.
(I've made both ways and both work fine)
1 scrap square of novelty fabric ( appx. 4" x 4" )
So now turn this fabric side down on your work surface.
This may seem odd... but next comes the 10" novelty fabric placed directly atop the layered battings.
Now you take those 2 of each fabric right side out triangles and "weave" them atop the 10" flat novelty fabric... Below are the first 3 triangles put down and then to place the final triangle, will require pulling back a corner to set in the final triangle. Skip down one more pic.
Final triangle in!
We're getting ready to stitch through several layers so PINNING
to secure layers will be very helpful.
Adjust ( lighten) the pressure foot so things will move easily through.
Stitch the entire perimeter.
