    These are some potholders I made after Nolee posted a pic of hers. These are made by layering a square of backing fabric (I used 6 1/2"), 3 layers of washed cotton batting, 7", and then starting with a strip down the center, doing stitch 'n flip on each side 'till I reach the corner. Then square it up and add binding just like I would on a quilt, all by machine.
    What are your methods for making potholders?

    These are very striking looking, and they sound pretty easy! I think I'll adopt your method!

    Yeah, a gift to me!! That's a great idea! :lol:
    I like to knit the square dishrags and put a purchased dish towel with it, and a couple of pot holders; makes a great gift! Good for a gift swap, secret sister, birthday gift, Christmas gift, etc., when I need something in a hurry.

    I also like that you left the hanging piece off. It has been years since I have seen anyone hang them. Just me..:)

    I love your pot holders. I like that method. I also make crocheted dish cloths but I don't knit.
