In this very first episode of the Tea Time Sewing, I'd like to share this cute and easy potholder/trivet project using your scraps. I love potholders, and can't never get enough of them . They brighten up your kitchen, and will make a great gift as well. We will sew this potholder with the "quilt as you" method, where we will piece the fabrics directly on the batting.
I posted the sew along video on my Youtube channel, you may go ahead and check that out , or scroll down below for the written instruction.
1. Lay the batting and the insul-bright together with the Insul-bright underneath and the batting on top, baste with basting spray.
2. Take two small scraps of fabric, lay them right side together, aligning the edges (position them on the center of the the batting, then sew with 1/4" of seam allowance.
3. Trim the excess fabric, press
4. Take another piece of scrap, position that on one of the edges the fabric, right sides together, then sew with 1/4" of seam allowance.
5. Trim the excess fabric, press
6. Keep sewing and add more fabric, to cover the entire batting.
7. Place the backing under the batting wrong side up, quilt (or baste instead)
8. Trim to measure 9" x 9"
9. Add the hanging loop.
10. Bind, and enjoy!
