Hello, it’;s Minki from you tired of making square or rectangle potholders? How about a circle potholder this time? I have made a pair and have kept using them as trivets, potholders and mostly for my kitchen decor. It’;s very simple and a fast project so you can finish in a evening and it’;s a perfect gift too!

Trace the pattern, matching the center line and cut out 8”; circles.

I’ve been making?batches of these sweet?holiday hearts?based on the Scandinavian Heart tutorial?by Charlotte Warr Anderson. They are clever little pockets, perfect for filling with small gifts for any occasion. Visit the?Scandinavian Heart?post here at WeAllSew to?find the?pattern and full tutorial. I modified the tutorial to use solid colored 100% cotton fabrics, and added a button to trim each heart.
