I thought it would be fun to have a Halloween themed potholder. A candy corn shape popped into my head and after a trip to the fabric store this is the result. I think it is so cute I will probably make some more.

I came across some plain potholders at a dollar store and thought they would go good with my denim child's apron. So I painted all the members in the birthday girl's family and called them her little peeps.

Durable pot holders in large sizes are easy to make by stitching cotton fabric onto both sides of a cotton washcloth.

My mother used to buy old towels at yard sales and make up terry towel pot holders for all of us girls. Mother is gone now but we still all treasure the extra special hot pads that seem to last forever and are easliy washed. Mother cut squares of terry and put 3 layers together and then machine quilted the squares. These are so much better than store bought ones.

I crochet granny squares and stitch them to squares of the same size cut from worn towels Stack them granny square, towel square, and a second granny square. You can stitch them together by hand, or machine stitch them by stitching around all for sides and then stitch them in a large X that runs diagonally from corner to corner.
