Redesigned Potholder to Easy Grip Pot Holder
Making a custom potholder
Step 1 start with an existing potholder. I purchased my for $1 from the dollar store.
Step 2 draw pattern on potholder
Step 3 stitch around your tracing before trimming
Step 4 cut close to stitch line.
Step 5 use scrap material and fold (this eliminates the need for a hem. Lay where your thumb will fit sew over existing stitching,trim close to stitching.
Step 6 repeat step 5 for top where your fingers will fit.
Step 7 zigzag all the way around to make a nice smooth edge.
Step 8 sew bias. This can be done a number of ways. I purchased one inch wide ribbon for under $1.50 for 7yards. You could reuse the original bias or make your own out of scrap material.
Step 9 attach bias leaving a loop for hanging.
