Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Msdeb21 made a really good point about using fat quarter squares. That would be one less step when creating these easy potholders. These would be a great new tradition as a gift during holidays. Potholders need replacing often and know you will get a few during the holidays would be something to look forward to.

All of your ideas and project are very beautifull and helpfull. Thank very much

I don't have a sewing machine, but I think this looks a lot like the fabric quarters at the store. I wish I could make them another way, but my sewing by hand is atrocious! These are very cute, and would be a fun way for me to use all the quarters I've picked up over the years that I haven't used!

I like to have simple items like this on hand to give away for all sorts of occasions. I volunteer a lot with many organizations and sometimes a family in crisis needs items. These are simple things can really make someone's day with things are not going well. I get to use up left-over material and make a difference at the same time.
