Five No-Pattern Potholder Projects

double potholder tutorial from The Boy TrifectaMy aunt calls these Paula Deen potholders, and I can certainly see any kind of cooking superstar wielding the result of this double potholder tutorial from The Boy Trifecta.

Although these potholders do call for larger amount of fabrics than the previous scrappy examples, the way that they protect your forearms being burnt as you carry a pan of brownies from the oven to the counter will win you over. The fact that they’re so much larger than a typical potholder can actually be an energy saver, as well–I generally make at least two conventional potholders as a gift for each friend or relative during the holidays, but with a double potholder, I only make one!

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.
