Since I craft often, I have many left over fabric scraps. Although they are small, they have patterns that are much too cute to throw away. After a bit of brainstorming, I decided to make quilted pot holders with the leftover fabric. I sorted the fabrics by color and matched them with complementing patterns. This trial and error process of matching different swatches of colors and designs is one my favorite parts of crafting.
I made two kinds of pot holders; one with pink flowers and polka dots on brown fabrics and another with an herb pattern and blue polka dots on green fabrics. One side of the pot holder has a pocket so that I can insert my hand to hold a pan. I included my “Kokobiyori” logo and attached a ribbon in the corner so that I can hang the holder on the side of the refrigerator.
The pot holder was easy to make, and became adorable Christmas presents for my friends.
