Choose some fun fabrics for your project like I did. I chose some fruit and vegetable fabrics for mine but there are loads of food fabrics at JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores, Hobby Lobby, Fabric.com or onlinefabricstore.net to choose from.

What you will need: How to Make Fabric Pot Protectors
- Pattern you can get by clicking on this link
- 1/4 yd fun fabric
- 1/4 yd quilt batting
- Standard sewing supplies
Step 1: Cut your fabrics
Using the pattern piece cut two fabric pieces on the fold and one batting piece on the fold.
Step 2: layer your fabrics
Place the two fabric pieces right sides together on your work surface. Place your batting piece n top of the fabric pieces and pin.
Step 3: stitch your fabrics
Stitch all the way around the piece leaving an opening on one of the arms of the piece for turning. Clip the notches between the arms without clipping through the stitching. Clip the corners.
Step 4: Turn your fabrics
Turn the piece right sides out through the opening you left and poke out the corners using a chopstick or a poking tool like That Purple Thang that you can get in my Amazon Shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Press thoroughly.
Step 5: Topstitch
Topstitch all the way around the edge making sure to enclose the opening that you left. Using the pattern piece draw a circle using a Frixion heat erasable pen that you can also get in my Amazon Shop in the center of the pot protector and stitch all the way around. You have now finished your pot protector. Make them for all of your pots and pans and give them as gifts. They are perfect for that.
