Well, hello there! Today I’m sharing how to sew strawberry pot holders. Make it for yourself or for someone you love, like I’m making it for my mom. Something she can keep in the kitchen which would remind her of me. These strawberry pot holders would make the perfect gift for anyone who loves to cook.
Don’t these strawberry pot holders just look perfect? Share it with your sewing circle or pin on your sewing board.
I’m currently working on two different patterns that would be available for sale this time. I’m so excited to work with a whole bunch of pattern testers for the first time and I’m really looking forward to see how their projects turn out. I’m only gonna reveal the name to you in this post which is “A Touch of Ruffles”. Cute right? Can you guess what it’s gonna be? Ofcource, you already know it if you are following me on Facebook and e-mail. Haha
Anyway, I was thinking I’ve never actually made anything for my mother other than this mom pillow so, today’s project is dedicated to my mom and I’m showing you how to make a quilted pot holder or hot pads.
How to sew strawberry pot holders?
For this quilted hot pad tutorial you will need:
- 1/2 yard of red fabric
- Large piece of green felt for the leaves
- Quilting batting
- Soft fusible interfacing
- Free pattern
First, cut out the
- front and back piece of the strawberry from the pattern
- batting also from the free pattern
- pocket piece
- leaves from the pattern.
- a small strip of felt 3″x 0.5″ for the loop.
To sew the strawberry pot holders, from the fusible interfacing, cut out two pieces for the front and back of the strawberry.
Fuse the front and back pieces to their interfacing.
Pin the leaves onto the front and using the zig zag stitch sew all around the outline of the leaves as shown.
Also sew a zig zag stitch around the piece used as loop.
To make the texture, randomly add zig zag stitches all around the strawberry’s body.
Next, take the pocket piece, fold the edges and sew as shown by the dotted lines.
Pin the pocket on the back so that the wrong side of the pocket is facing the right side of the back piece of the strawberry.
Fold the strip into half and pin it on the top. The edges should meet the raw edges of the strawberry. Place the back piece on top so that the right sides are facing each other. On the wrong side of the front piece pin the batting. Sew all the layers together leaving a gap.
Turn the right side out from the gap and sew all around as shown by the dotted lines. Press and you are done with your strawberry pot holders!
Did you enjoy this cute and easy potholder tutorial? Let me know in the comments below. Don’t forget to pin the strawberry pot holders tutorial for later.
The funny thing is, only after editing all the pictures I realized you don’t actually need a pot holder to hold an electric kettle. Lol. But, then again that’s the only hot kitchen appliance I had here in the dorm so you can just ignore the styling mismatch. 😉
