    pot holders -

    Supposedly - a pot holder should be "easy" to make ?

    In my experience - I think NOT!

    I would no longer recommend them for a beginning project.

    I have chosen to be happy because it is good for my health - Voltaire

    I can make them - I just think that there are easier things for beginners to start with.

    Although I do agonize about how big to make them, how much filling to put in them, etc.

    I use an orphan block, put two layers of cotton batting on top, add a backing sew around, leave opening to turn. Turn sew around block 1/4" for a binding look and it is done. When it gets all yucky and used looking I toss and make another.
    Got fabric?

    I totally agree with you. When I make them, I make a few sets at a time. Assembly line. LOL
