I’ll admit, I’m not much of a cook. I can make pasta and eggs but anything out of that skill level is a challenge. My family will never let me live down the day when I burned soup. Who knew you could even do that? I didn’t, that’s for sure.
The funny thing is that as hopeless as I am at cooking, I love to bake. Cakes, cookies, brownies, you name it I’ve baked it. I guess I like how scientific the recipes are, basically if you follow the directions you end up with a delicious treat!
This summer, I’m moving into my first apartment and I’m excited to have my very own kitchen to let my baking fantasies run wild. The kitchen itself is a little drab but I know with some cute crafty projects I’ll be able to liven the decor up a bit. That’s why I’m loving these quick and easy pot holder sewing patterns. Not only are they practical but they will look great hung on the shelf over my sink or even just on the counter. Just looking at these cute potholders makes me want to bake. Or even learn to cook!
You won’t be able to find these fun pot holders in stores! Not only are these sewing patterns unique, but they are super easy to make:
“Let’s Eat” Potholder – I’m in love with the fun applique utensils on this pot holder. Not only does it have a pocket for my hand but it’s so cute it makes me want to cook something!
Retro Potholder – Right now I’m really into anything with a vintage or retro feel. This pot holder has a fun pattern and colors that remind me of the 60’s and 70’s.
You Are So Hot Potholder – This is such a clever pattern. It’s silly but it’s sure to make you smile every time you see it. I’m a sucker for puns so I think this pot holder is hilarious!
Double Potholder – This potholder is longer than most and protects your wrists and part of your arm from the heat. It’s great for me because I’m not the most graceful when it comes to maneuvering pans out of the oven.
Polka Dot Pot Holders – Polka dots are such a fun pattern and it makes these pot holders really pop! I want to make a set of these in coordinating colors to give to my friends as housewarming gifts.
Dishtowel Potholder – These are made from dishtowels which makes it a thrifty pattern that’s really useful. I’m going to buy some dishtowels from the dollar store to make these on the cheap.
