This easy sewing pot holder project is a great introductory project for a beginning sewist; all you need is to be able to cut a square and sew a straight line!
Star Wars Pot Holders
2 – 10″x10″ pieces of fabric (doesn't have to be Star Wars, but I will always recommend it!)
2 – 10″x10″ pieces Pellon Insul-fleece
Thread to match
Easy Pot Holder Sewing Project
For pot holders you can cut them any size you'd like. So you can do 8″x8″ or 10″x10″. Just make sure when you cut the material that the fabric is square.
Cut squares from the material you'd like and from the insul-fleece. Make sure the silver side of the fleece is face upwards below the fabric printed side up.
Place both pieces of printed side up together. You should now see the white sides of the insul-fleece. Stitch all the way around leaving a 1 1/2 to 2 inch opening to flip the fabric right side in after stitching.
After stitching all the way around flip fabric right side in. Top stitch all the way around closing the hole while top stitching.
After top stitching all the way around run a top stitch from corner to corner to opposite sides. This is going to add the nice quilted look and keep your insul-fleece and fabric from separating when washing.
Hanging Hook Loop Piece (Optional)
This is optional. If you'd like to make the hook. Take a small piece of fabric the length you'd like the hook to be. Fold the two edges inward and press. Then fold in half and press. This way no edges are showing. Top stitch down each side of the fabric. Make a loop and place in between the printed fabrics with the loop face into the pot holder. The ends should be sticking out of the edge of the pot holder. You will do this before stitching around the first time when your white pieces are facing outward. So when flipping the pot holder right side in you will have the loop on the corner of the fabric between the two printed pieces of fabric.
