Clementine Stripwork Potholder Tutorial

One of my IRL (in real life) blogging friends is the super talented Lindsay Conner of Lindsay Sews and she picked this bundle for me to share a tutorial for you from the Clementine line of fabrics in the Anna Griffin shop.

I just love these sweet and vintage-esque prints!

What you'll need:

Strips (cut 6) =  2.5" wide by 4.5" tall
Strip lining (cut 1) = 11" wide by 7" tall
Strip Insul-bright backing (cut 1) = 11" wide by 7" tall

Front panel (cut 1) = 11" wide by 9" tall
Back panel (cut 1) = 11" wide by 9" tall
Back panel Insul-bright (cut 1) = 11" wide by 9" tall

Hanging loop (cut 1) = 4.5" long by 1.5" wide

A fat quarter is typically 18"x22" so if you coordinated with 4 prints you could make a set of 4 potholders!



Sew strips together with 1/4" seam allowance.  Press seams open


Layer your strip Insul-bright, lining and strip work
Place the lining on top of the Insul-bright with wrong sides together.  Place the stripwork right sides together with the lining and sew across the top edge only with a 1/4" seam allowance. 


Turn seam over and match bottom raw edges so there is a contrast band made from the lining at the top of the strip work.  Place the strip work on top of the front panel.  Pin in place.


Place the back panel on top of the back panel Insul-bright and quilt vertical lines at 1" intervals.


Sew the hanging loop by pressing long edges in 1/4" toward center.  Match up the long edges again and press.  Stitch closed.  Fold the strip and pin at the top corner of the front panel.


Place back panel with Insul-bright right sides together with front panel and strip work.  Sew along edges leaving a 4" opening to turn.


Trim all edges and clip corners.  Turn right side out and top stitch around pot holder.
