Scrappy Round Potholder Tutorial

When Sarah at FairyFace Designs asked me to participate in her {Sew} Get Started Tutorial series, I was thrilled, and knew just what project I wanted to share.

I made a set of round scrappy potholders for a potholder swap with our sister guild, the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild and learned a lot in the process, including how to bind a round object. I'm delighted to share my step by step process with you.

Please do head on over to Sarah's and check out my tutorial! Click on the button below to be taken to her master list of wonderful tutorials. Enjoy!

  2. Thank you for the tutorial, I have never made a circular bias binding and now I know how.

  3. So fun, Felicity! Great tute, will have to give it a go one of these days :)

  4. I missed this the other day. I love your potholder and have yet to make a round one. I'll have to give it a try!

  5. I've tried binding round things with little success. This may be just what the doctor ordered. Such a pretty potholder!

  6. Awesome tute Felicity!! And I am the proud owner of the originals- which are still hanging on my wall in my art studio- heehee!! :D

  7. beautiful potholder! i adore the blue gingham you used for the binding. your circular binding looks amazing!
