My very first tutorial!
This tutorial is for...
So hear it goes...
I use cast iron pans and I have burned my hand so many times by forgetting to use a potholder and grabbing the very hot handle. These have been on my list of things to do for a while.
The finished project.
-Flame retardant fabric. I used an old felted wool sweater that still had a little of its stretch left after felting.
1. Measure the length and width of the pot handles you want to cover, mine was approx. 5.5 inches by 2 inches.
2. Next, make a template of your design. I wanted my cozies to be really snug so I didn't add any seam allowances. However if your material doesn't stretch add at least a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Have fun with the design. I made a simple design because my fabric is already so eye catching. You could make the end pointed instead of rounded, a star or some other shape.
3. Lay out your template on the fabric and cut out.
4. Pin right sides together and sew up seams as illustrated (the red line on the picture).
5. Turn right side out and enjoy!
Note: I didn't finish the edges on mine because it was felted but if you want to, you would turn the edge on the opening under and sew them down before sewing the two pieces together.
I hope you enjoy! This was fun, perhaps more tutorials will come soon.
