Quilted Potholders Using a Mini Charm Pack - A Quick Little Project

Quilted Pot Holders

My quick little project using a mini charm pack is complete.  I really need some new quilted potholders because all of my current ones look awful.  Of course I am a little hesitant to use these, because I know it won't be long before they look awful too.  What can I say, I am a messy cook.

It was a quick and easy project with the help of a mini charm pack.  No cutting, trimming, measuring... the little squares are ready to go.

Sew them together, a little quilting, and add the binding.

I really need to make a few more of these.  I seriously need to throw out the ones I have.  I wasn't kidding when I said they were awful.  They are stained up from many home cooked meals and some even have a few burned spots where they got too close to the burner.

Two is a good start to overhauling my potholder collection.

Here's to productive sewing!

  2. They're so cute. I don't blame you for not wanting to use them. Maybe you could make a couple to just hang for decoration.

  5. I was just thinking the same thing....my potholders look awful too. Even after they are washed. So I guess I had better get busy making some too. Yours are adorable! I love the aqua binding!
