Angle cut corners to about 1/8” from stitching and trim remaining edges (except in 4” opening area) to 1/8” from stitching.

      • Turn pot holder right side out, pushing corners out with point turner. Fold opening edges to inside and press entire pot holder.

      • With longer stitch length, topstitch around entire pot holder approximately 2” in from edge.

      • Starting just above top of opening, topstitch around entire potholder approximately 1/4" from edge being sure to catch both edges of opening with stitching. Press when done.
      • Cut a 6” piece of 3/8” wide grosgrain ribbon and handstitch to top center securing with a button as per picture.
