    My aunt just had her kitchen redone in blue and white so I thought I could whip these out quick for her. Well that didn't work out so well. It took me all weekend. (my first pot holders) So anyway, here is the fabric and the finished product. The blue is much brighter than the pic looks. This is front and back pics.

    Very nice. I they made from regular 100% cotton? For some reason they look heavier. What did you use for batting?

    Thank you everyone. I hope she gets them today and likes them as much as you all do.

    Diana, the OBW's are not anywhere as hard as they look. The book is so easy to follow and doesn't skip any details. I highly recommend it.

    This Mom, I used 2 layers of insulated batting. It said use 1 layer with a layer of regular batting but I didn't follow the directions. :roll: One of my downfalls. So that's probably why they look so heavy. They are pretty stiff but I bet the hold up a long time! LOL

    What a great idea! Your potholders are very attractive......
    I, too, would probably use two layers of insul-brite :)

    Hello Pink rose,

    I don't think your question is stupid, I am wondering the same thing.

    Cheers Ann

    Hi again. It's One Block Wonders. You take one fabric and stack the layers so when it's cut, you get the same exact piece repeated. Then the fun begins! :mrgreen:
