Measure, mark and cut one 9” x 9” piece of your main, one piece of the 9” x 9” piece of your complimentary fabric, one 2” x 4” piece of either of the cotton fabrics and one 9" x 9" piece of heat safe cotton batting or fabric.
Fold your 2” x 4” in half length-wise and press with an iron. Next fold each side to touch the middle fold and press together and then fold in half and press. This will be your loop to hang your pot holder.
Place one piece of your cotton fabric right side up, place loop piece in one corner, with the raw edge facing the corner.
Lay the second piece of cotton fabric on top of the first piece, but right side down this time (so the right sides are facing each other).
Lay the heat safe or cotton batting on top of the cotton fabric pieces.
Pin your pieces together, leaving a 4” opening.
Sew a 1/2” seam allowance around all four sides. Secure either side of the opening by going back and forth a few times. This will prevent it coming apart when you turn it. Be sure you do not sew the opening shut.
Next, clip each corner of the pot holder, being very careful to not snip into the stitching around the edges.
Carefully turn the pot holder right side out through the opening you left.
After it's right side out, press all four sides of the pot holder with your iron. Then sew a 1/4” seam allowance around all four sides. This will also close the opening you created.
Now you have your very own pot holder that you made! Repeat the process until you have as many pot holders as you need.
