    Good luck with this adventure. I think it is great that you are doing this with them. :)
    Google potholders. I recently made one that has a pot holder at both ends of a long peice of fabric. And all it is is a long piece of fabric, with backing and insulbrite inside it and you sew on fabric to where you put your hands in. Put binding all the way around it. :) Quite simple.

    Martha Stewart has a free pattern for heart shaped potholders.

    It's not a book. Just a single pattern but it's really cute.

    here is a link of the QB with an easy tutorial for making a pot holder. I tried it last night and it was easy. Young girls are really smart and creative, they would enjoy it. Give it a shot.

    A 6 1/2 inch four patch would make a great potholder and teaches basic piecing.
