Sunday Sew-In: How to Make a Scrap Fabric Potholder

“She replaced her phone, closed her eyes, and forced herself to begin measuring flour, sugar, and butter. For some reason mental baking usually sent her right to sleep.” 
― Roisin Meaney, Semi-Sweet: A Novel of Love and Cupcakes

I love to bake. Cookies and cakes and fancy desserts. But I can't eat any of those things anymore so no baking here. Heck, I don't even cook. Breakfast? Yogurt. Lunch? Pepperoni stick, string cheese, and three crackers. Dinner? Usually a TV dinner or pizza delivery. We've gotten very, very, very lazy. It's cold, it's windy, and there is snow on the road. These are the days we go nowhere and do nothing.

Being today was a Sew-In Sunday, and being that hubby burns potholders on the heating element of our oven, I decided it was time for a new one. A potholder, that is. (Although a new stove is going to have to be not far behind.)

For this project you will need:
*all fabrics need to be 100% cotton

I also made a zippered pouch, watched NASCAR on TV, and fed the baby kitties every three hours. A busy, not-lazy Sunday.
