I love these pot holders and they are super easy to make. I love that you can make them 2 different ways on with the pocket or just the pot holder itself. This video is very informative and very well done. These are great to make for host gifts or for any cook or even yourself. The video shows you how to give it that quilt effect too and their is a down loadable pattern.
