Got lots of scrap pieces of fabric left from other projects and can use some new or more pot holders then here is a tutorial for you. I have made a few and they are easy and fast to make and I like that you can design your own. I tried to sew mine without the adhesive and it shifted when I sewed it and the piece was a little off but now I see this scrapbusted is sewed that way so I will finish the one I started. These will make good housewarming gifts too.

where is the pattern for the scrapbuster potholders

These are adorable! My Mom has been doing this for years. Recently she realized that it is a good idea to make them rectangular, and bigger! Everyone she gives them to loves them. (Usually she makes them 8 X 11, or so). She loves using scraps!!! I give her all the hems I cut off pants that I hem for my clients and she painstakingly picks out all those hems and uses 'garbage' to make something beautiful.

I made some of these out of Christmas fabric with left-over pieces from other projects. They came out SOOOOO stinkin' cute!!! I have a feeling I'll be giving a bunh of these for Christmas.....regular fabric for year round use, though....<3
