Supplies

Two pieces of cotton: 20 * 20 cm (8 * 8  inches)

Two pieces of iron-on vlieseline H640 (you can buy some HERE): 20 * 20 cm (8 * 8 inches)

Bias binding (2 cm wide, 1 inch is also good): about 90 cm (36 inches)

Yarn for sewing squares on your fabric and yarn for sewing the bias tape

A bias binding foot for your sewing machine is a great help! (I bought my bias binder foot HERE)

Let’s get started

  •  Prewash and iron your fabric
  • Iron a piece of vlieseline to each piece of fabric

  • Stack both pieces, fabric faced to the outside, and sew them together using a diamond pattern. To hold the stack of fabric and vlieseline together while you sew can use clips (I bought mine HERE).

  • When everything is sewn together cut the edges that do not overlap and round the corners.

  • Sew the bias tape around the pot holder. Using a bias binder foot will give your work a more professional look and save you a lot of time here.

  • Continue sewing the bias tape for about 5 cm (2 inches). With this we will make the loop to hang the pot holder.

  • Fold back the end of the bias tape, making a loop, and sew it a few times back and forth.

  • Make a second pot holder for a nice set!
