I am in need of potholders!and i really like the idea of making them…small and useful, they are a project easily and quickly finished. In book the technique called for layers of terry cloth between the design fabric and abias binding with a nice way to make the loop….welllllll…since i didn;t use bias binding, the loop dodn ;t work….and stitching even by machine through the terry cloth was really hard. I suspect it is the machine since it doesn;t do well going over doubled seams either… I could barely get the foot raised enough to get the sandwich in there ! but, in it went and now i have a very sturdy hot pad…and in a color i really like. the binding is filled completely which gives it that sturdy feel too.

here it is…
