Happy Birthday to my husband! We like our craft beer in this house, so much that we brew our own from time to time. We may have our own two tap keg-orator in our living room and a Washington State beer Cap map as well as a few other novelty beer decorations. So, I thought it would be fitting if I made J some of his own brewing pot holders. I found this fabric (similar) about a year ago at Jo-Ann’s and knew I needed to make something for him with it.
Sew Easy 20 Minute Pot Holders
2-3 Fat quarters (or more) fabric
Extra wide double fold bias tape (1 package made two for me)
Walking foot for your sewing machine (the project is pretty thick, and it would be challenging without one)
Cut your fabric:
I had a specific width I could work with because of the pattern of the front piece but you can adjust the size if you want something less rectangular. Cut one small front, one inner pocket lining (solid black in this case) 6″ x 6″, cut two for the back pieces (6″ x 10″).
2- 6″ x 10″
Cut one 6″ x 6″ and one 6″ x 10″ of insul-bright. and layer with right sides facing out!
Next, stitch the front pocket bias tape. Follow this tutorial for how to sew on bias tape.
Stack your front pocked onto the back piece.
Follow that same tutorial to apply the bias tape to the whole project.
Check that out! Sew easy right?? I suppose if you wanted to get really fancy with the bias tape you could make a loop to hang, but I chose the simple route.
Let me know if you try making these! They make great gifts (because you know the holidays are coming up). I may make a few more in just some fun fabrics for my kitchen. We’ll see.
