tutorial on re-covering pot holders


Take one old potholder (one with stains, burn marks, etc)

sew (right sides together) a pillowcase with a lovely fabric.

Slip the old potholder in the pillow case, close up last side and sew a finishing hem all the way around.

Finish by sewing quilted lines throughout, binding everything together and adding texture.

And there you go (perfect for a recession)your newly recovered pot holder!!
