A gathered polka dot frill and some commercial bias trim finished it off. It has already been put to good use in the kitchen.
My supply of Kitchen Pot Holders (Hot Pads) is growing! This latest one was made with some quilting cotton and waffle cotton left over from other kitchen projects. I used two layers of cotton batting and one layer of Insul-Brite in both the base and pocket of the Pot Holder.
It is a good utilitarian design for a pot holder. Now I am heading back to my sewing room to work some more on my fancier appliquéd versions.
