Scrap Potholders



I have a lot of food related fabric scraps so yesterday on a whim I decided to make some potholders. I just winged it and made them based on my specifications and I like how they turned out. I quilted them and used soft and natural batting for the insulation. They were really easy to make and used up random scraps of not only fabric, but batting, thread and bias tape. This project also introduced me to the walking foot and now in retrospect, I don't know how I sewed many things without it!

I love both of those. Only you would have so many 'food' scraps. Ha! :)

These are way cute. I have that same banana fabric that I used some recently on bibs. Next I should make some hot pads like these. They look great made out of scraps. I bet my bibs would look cuter with a more scrappy/quilty look, too.

Thanks Brittany! I bet the bibs look adorable with this fabric :)
