Did you ever go shopping to replace your pot holders to go with a new paint color or to change the look and not be able to find what you want and finally give up. I know I have and still am looking. I have thought of making my own but thought it would take too much of my time until I came across this video and tutorial. Once again Angel Peterson does an amazing job explaining how to make these very easily and I love that there are suggested links to go to to learn how to do each step if you are new to sewing it. And she explains how you can finish these pot holders two ways. So perfect and has made me motivated to make some and even give as gifts. Anyone else? Let's get making some and post those pictures.
