Five No-Pattern Potholder Projects

retro potholder tutorial from Going Sew CrazyTired of squares? Here’s a pieced potholder that’s circular, meaning there aren’t any corners to get snagged on the oven door or dragged over the burner. This retro potholder tutorial from Going Sew Crazy results in a potholder that looks complicated, but due to some clever origami folding is quite simple to master.

The retro potholder doesn’t call for any additional batting, and although the folding and piecing in layers will give you some thickness, you may want to consider either adding your own batting to the project, or using these as potholders for serving, not cooking–they’re certainly pretty enough for company!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
