Quick and Easy Potholders and Friday Favorites Linky Party 550

I noticed a worn spot on an oven mitt I popped into the washing machine. It made me realize how the potholder/oven mitt population has gotten dangerously low around here. I made a mental note to add pot holders to my next shopping list.

And then I realized I know how to sew and that I can new potholders. Yeah. I know. Crazy right?

Especially when I've been happily sewing fabric stash bust projects like a fiend since March. I can actually see the bottom of my fabric storage box!

They are fancy but that's OK. The life expectancy of my potholders are on the short side

I  followed my How to Make Dalek Potholder tutorial to make the potholders with the exception of sewing three pieces of interestingly cut scrap fabric to make a rectangle and sewing quilting lines in the center for practice. Also, I was listening to a good book on Audible (you can try Audible and get TWO FREE AUDIOBOOKS HERE!)  and wanted to finish the chapter. (Disclosure: I am including affiliate links in this post for your convenience.) I had part of a medium weight bath towel I used to back baby bibs and used that for the middle layer instead of Insul-Bright (you can learn more about  Insul- Bright insulated lining here)

I showed you my project! Let's see your fantastic DIY projects, crafting, recipes, and tutorials!

My mom likes to make some similar potholders with terrycloth towels but I love how yours look.
