Not Your Mother's Potholder

This FAT QUARTER FRIENDLY unique potholder pattern is a must see!  It's different from anything our mother's used, hence the name.  I work outside the home and need quick and easy meals.  Most of the time this means a "one pot wonder" using my skillet.  The Not Your Mother's Potholder allows me to take the skillet straight from the stove to the table with style. 



The PDF downloadable pattern includes two sizes.  One that fits about a 10" skillet.  Then a smaller one to fit 6" to 8" pot.  The pattern includes both size templates and clear, easy instructions with color photos for visual learning. The pattern uses a snap closure on the handle and bias binding to cover the raw edges. My easy peasy method for making bias binding is included.  The bias binding tutorial is great to have on hand for future projects that need matching binding.  What a bonus!! 

I use a KAM Snap Setter for applying snaps but feel free to use whatever method or tool you prefer to attach a complete snap closure for the handle.  Click HERE to be taken to a link to see the KAM Snaps in the Amazon store.  

To purchase this pattern, simply add it to your cart and checkout through Paypal.  There will be an email to follow with download instructions.  Instant gratification!
