I was tweeking an old tutorial I'd written, in 2008!, and it disappeared. So I'm writing it again. :)
I like to think that I have perfected the making of potholders over the years. I have given many away and am now needing to replace the one's that have worn out.
Step one would be to draw a line diagonally across the terry cloth. I didn't draw one because there is a seam I can follow.
then lay a strip on one side of the center. Pin it,
Here is a red one that is not quite finished but you can see the large triangle is made up of little strips.
My daughter in law took lessons and made several; you can see them here.
I have Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas potholders. I keep them with the holiday decorations and pull them out seasonally.
