My friend made this cute heart shaped pot holder for me! She took it up a notch by printing up a photo of her hubby and herself on each side of the heart with transfer paper, and clinking a glass, wearing chef coats, with the caption, still cooking after all these years! I use it almost every day because it is so sturdy! Love it!

this is so cute

I have made these and they are beautiful, gave them away to my sisters and nieces and they loved them.

I keep getting a message that "an error with this website has caused the page to stop working" when i try to download the heart potholder pattern.

I simply L.O.V.E. it !!!! _

I have been making heart shaped pot holders for over 30 years, but I do not use the bias binding. I prepare these the same way, but leave a small opening to turn them after sewing them right sides together. Once I have slip stitched the opening closed I do a top stitch all around about 1/4 inch away from the edge. This is an easy way for those of us who don't like to deal with bias binding. I have used the prequilted teflon bottoms for heat resistance as well as the insulbright. I like the fact that old ideas keep recirculating. Wish I had copyrighted them, but it was a paper pattern given to my by a friend of my mother's who had been making them for years as well.

I made 24 of these pot holders. I baked heart shaped cookies, decorated them and put one in a zip lock bag and placed it each pot holder. My employees loved them!

I made several of these for my neighbors and they were a hit! So easy to make and adorable!

these are the cutest pot holders ever and I love the pockets on them.
