Turn Old Jeans into Pot Holders

By:

Turn the seat of an old pair of jeans into potholders. The jean pockets, already ready for slipping in your hands, make this sewing project a breeze.  This is a fun and simple project that crafters of all skill levels can make, and a great way to reuse an old pair of jeans that has seen better days!  You can even make these fun potholders as a gift for a new neighbor or a fellow coworker.  Durable and strong, these potholders are a cook's best tool!

 

Materials:

  • Old pair of jeans
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Wool batting
  • Sewing pins
  • Sewing machine

 

Instructions:

  1. Find a pair of old jeans. Perhaps you have an unsightly hole that is beyond mending like me?
     
  2. Cut two 10 inch squares around each pocket, with the pocket as close to the center of the square as possible.
     
  3. Cut out two 10 inch squares in fabric to match the denim squares.
     
  4. For the insulation layer, use two layers of thick wool batting cut to equal squares, or use several layers of denim squares cut from the jean legs.
     
  5. For each potholder, assemble the three square layers of denim, insulation, fabric. Align the insulation squares with the fabric square, with the wrong side of the fabric touching the insulation. Pin in place. Align this pinned piece with the denim square, with the right side of the denim touching the fabric piece. Pin in place.
     
  6. With a ½ inch seam allowance, stitch three sides of each pot holder.
     
  7. Turn inside out and press. Topstitch the remaining side closed. Repeat for other potholder.
