Custom Graphics

There is nothing more wonderful than a hand made, unique gift. This potholder is easy to make, plus the project teaches new quilting skills, as well as how to transfer an image to fabric. Use our free graphic, or one of your own favorite photos or graphics. Add lace, ribbon, and other trim as desired. Use this same technique to make a pot holder for each holiday!

Christmas Potholder Center Diamond Graphic  pdf file - OR use your own graphic design or photo

Use your own choice of prints etc. The colors listed below refer to the diagram. I used a darker green for my small border squares (see photo above). These directions refer to the small squares as red.

pot holder White Transfer Fabric: Two 8.5" x 11" sheets (treated fabric to print onto)

Green Fabric: enough to make two 4.5" x 4.5" squares.

Red Fabric: a strip that is 24" long by 2v wide

Backing Fabric, Batting & Insulation: 8.75" x 8.75" square
Visit our Insulation for hot pad insulation

Seam Binding: enough to go around the finished potholder (approximately 36") PLUS enough for the hanging loop (total 41").
Or, you can purchase a plastic or wood ring for hanging the potholder. You can also make your own binding out of matching fabric. Refer to instructions below.

NOTE: It is always a good idea to pre-shrink your fabric. Purchase a bit extra to allow for shrinkage.

Thread (to match background)

Ribbon or lace, etc. for trim

Sewing Supplies: scissors, quilting pins, large sewing ruler, fabric marking pencils, seam ripper

Hint: quilting pins are easier to use than regular pins; a tupperware box works well as a supply box.

Note: all seams are 1/4 inch. Always iron between steps.
Safety Reminders For Little Helpers

A. Always have an adult do all the ironing!
B. Never run with scissors. Carry them pointed end down.
C. Never use a sewing machine without adult supervision.
D. Always let an adult use the seam ripper for you.

Now you are ready to start!
