Directions:

Step 1

Assemble the scrap fabrics together and separate them if you are making 2 sets of potholders, then set them aside. Lay the backing fabric on your work surface with its wrong side facing up, then place the batting and Insul-Bright on top, and pin them in place. Place the small piece of fabric that you want at the center, then pin it, and sew it in place.

Step 2

Continue building and sewing the fabric pieces together as shown in the video until you finish the whole log cabin block. Once you’re done sewing the pieces together, trim off the excess batting all around the square, then sew the binding fabric on the edges of the potholder, and add a small loop so you can hang them.
