Although this might seem like a simple potholder with a basic square shape it is the pocket that really caught my eye. Potholders are of course perfect in the kitchen but I have made them with pockets to hold and cushion many sewing items. Perfect for scissors, seam rippers and measuring tape. The outside works like a pincushion too. Great useful sewing project.
