Tired 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!
