Inspired by one I saw online I crocheted a potholder. I added a lining, two layers of Insulbrite, and a backing. I sewed around the edges and over the stitching to quilt it together. I think this might actually be a useable potholder! LOL

Oh, I like it! It is too pretty to use. Did you use a bias strip around the outside edge? It is so neatly sewn. And your crochet is lovely.

It reminds me of my childhood. Stuff my mom would bring home from the women's society craft fair. Always so lovingly made.
Your potholder looks both pretty and practical!

Yes, I used bias binding to get the smooth curve. Here's the tutorial I saw on this method.http://sewtakeahike.typepad.co...ooked-and-bound.html

I love to make potholders! However, they are mostly decorative. Never thought of adding the quilt back to make them more heat proof! Thank you for a great idea !
