Use my free sewing pattern to sew a cute patchwork potholder! This clever design has pockets on the back so fingers never get burned.

These potholders have pockets for your hand on the back. Because if you’re going to sew a beautiful potholder, you might as well make it incredibly functional too.

You will need: – Fabric for the patchwork – Small pieces of fabric - Bias cut fabric - Insulbright insulated batting - Cotton quilt batting - Quilt basting spray

Stack the 5” charm squares together on your cutting mat.

Cut them in half twice to get 24 – 2 1/2” squares. The OLFA 45mm Endurance Blade really does cut through 6 layers with no problem.

Arrange the 24 small squares into 4 rows of 6.
