Novelty Pot Holders Say “I Love You” in the Kitchen
Cute, cute, cute: this is the comment you will get if you make novelty pot holders for your gift list this season. Part throwback, part new, here are the best tutorial videos I have on YouTube for novelty pot holders of several styles. And check out my Strawberry Tea Cozy below….
Make this pattern up to be as simple or as elaborate as you please. I’ve free-motion quilted the veining, as well as added a tight meander allover, but you could just straight stitch the veins with a walking foot instead.
Let’s Sew Chili Pepper Handle Covers: this diminutive novelty “pot holder” is great for cast iron skillets and long-handled cookware that gets a little too hot to the touch. This pattern is super easy to adjust in length.
If you haven’t learned to free-motion quilt yet, just substitute straight lines of stitching to modify this design as indicated in the detailed video instructions.
Let’s Free-Motion Quilt Apple Oven Mitts: this sweet pincher-style apple mitt brightens any kitchen, especially if you love the color red! Designed to resemble the fruit with a slice cut out of it, this perky favorite has a turned, edged-stitched leaf for a hanger, sewn on with a colorful button.
Practice your free-motion meander quilting while making these for gifts.
