One basic pot holder
Embroidery thread
Hand sewing needle
Embellishments – contrasting fabric, no sew adhesive, paint, buttons, etc (all optional)

Start with a basic potholder like the one above. You don’t need one with a pocket.

Embellish. I made some fabric appliques to add to the potholder. I just used a no sew adhesive to add the fabric houses. You could also do freezer paper stencils or embroider a monogram on the top. This is where you can really tailor the project to your own style.

Fold potholder in half and match up edges. Sew both sides together with a running stitch (refer to yellow lines). I used embroidery floss to sew up the case because the fabric is so thick. Knot ends, trim, and you’re done.
