Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The finished potholders measure 6 1/2" x 6 1/2 "


  • Scraps of fabric that measure at least 6 1/2" x 6 1/2 "
  • If you want to buy fabric to make these, you can make 6 potholder squares (or 3 complete potholders) out of 1/4 yard or 1 fat quarter.
  • Batting - any type will work, but insulated batting (also called Insulbrite) works the best. It's thin, lightweight, and deflects the heat to protect your hands. Yardage needed will depend on the width of the batting and how many potholders you want to make.
  • Extra wide double fold bias tape - they usually come in packages of 3 yards. One package of tape will make 3 potholders.

You Will Also Need:

  • A good pair of scissors
  • Sewing pins
  • A ruler or hem gauge
