    Default Great gift idea. Not your average pot holder!

    Great for quick sewing of gifts. I like his design with the finger pockets.

    I like that. Looks super easy too. :-)

    It's like a big wine glass coaster!

    I made one of these potholders today, and while I love the design (and Rob and his tutorials!), I will make my next one a bit smaller. It is just too big for my hand to be comfortable or probably even safe using the measurements Rob gives. It will not go to waste though, it is a good size for a hot pad.

    And one modification I made was to use regular batting (Hobbs 80/20) in the top folded corner pieces. I just didn't see the need for insul-bright there. But that is just my personal preference.

    Quilting is my passion . . . chocolate is a close second!

    That's good to know. I wonder what would be a good size square. I'm making bowl cozies for Nana and Nandy, but a couple of bowl cozies and a couple of these pot holders might work well.

    I'm going to try 7" squares next time and see how that goes. I think for my size hands, this will work much better. If not, I'll just turn it into another hot pad and go down another inch.

    I was at IKEA recently and bought a bundle of printed canvas squares. This is perfect for those. Thanks.

    Rob did show two sizes. He called it a trivet when he started with a 10-inch square. He also suggested beginning with an 8-inch square for a potholder. Is that the size that was too big for you? Maybe it is his man hand.
