In the Designer's Words: "My best seller at craft shows are pot holders and most pot holder patterns call for binding. I decided to make my own pattern with no binding and it's so simple that anyone can make it."

Pot holders and hot pads that you buy at the store are often boring, flimsy, and not worth the money. Learn how to make pot holders that withstand all your cooking adventures and match your kitchen with the Easy No-Binding Pot Holder Pattern. This free sewing pattern is relatively simple to make and makes a great hostess gift or a housewarming gift. These charming DIY pot holders do not require you to bind the final project, making it faster than most sewing patterns out there and ideal for beginners.

All fixed, Renee! Please let me know if I can help with anything else.

Very smart idea. Binding drives me crazier than I all ready am. I have a box of fat squares that will make up into very pretty hot pads. After I make them they will go into a different box to be put aside for Christmas gifts.thank you for sharing this great idea.
