This folkloric potholder will brighten up any kitchen. The background behind the potholder’s center design is quilted with a chicken wire pattern. The borders of the potholder are applied while in the hoop. Thorough and detailed instructions as well as many photos guide you through the process of making this project. Your download includes the potholder with and without the center design in 2 sizes. There are a total of 4 stitch files in your download. Closure of the back of the potholder can be accomplished by closing the opening with hand stitches or by fusing. No additional sewing machine stitching required (except for loop).
