Pot holder handle tutorial(AKA pot handle condoms)

I love pretty pot holder heck who doesn't?
A while back I made some there easy peasy and take no time at all.
My favorite pot holders are the ones you stick on the handles so your pot so you don't burn your self while cooking.
My Friend Tiffany calls them pot handle condoms.
I guess they kinda look like a condom and hey they are protection for your hands from getting burned.
So do you all want to know how to make them ?
(I hear your heads a nodding)
Supply list!!
scrap fabric
terry cloth old towel or new one.
sewing machine
And time.
First make a pattern.
I simply traced my pot Handel to get the right length and then made it 2 and a half time the with.
Then I placed the pattern on the terry cloth and the scrap fabric and then cut i 2 of each ( 2 terry pieces 2 cloth pieces)

I then pined the bottom of one terry piece to one cloth piece and sewed a 1/4 seam across the bottom and repeated on the second piece.

Next place the cloth pieces right sides together with the terry pieces facing out.
then sew a seam all the way around leaving an opening at the bottom.

Now you need to turn it right side out , you can press it if you want and then you are all done.

Now you have a pot handle holder or pot condom that you can be proud of!
I think making them with matching pot holders is a great gift.

As always let me know if there is any mistakes or if you have any questions?

Get your craft on Thurs.
