Potholder - Binding Loop -

As promised - 
Today I'll show you how I make the "loop" - 
And try to clarify some stuff - ;))
I decided to stitch the binding down with a straight stitch - 
And started in the one corner - 
And continued on around - 
Mitering the corners as I came to them - 
And when I got to the end - 

I kept going - 
Folding the binding in on itself - 

Enclosing the raw edges - 
And sewing off the potholder onto the binding -

I used a pin to mark 4" from the edge of the Potholder - 

And sewed a little past it - 
Just because - 

Then I took it to the ironing board - 
And measured out 4" - 

And cut it off - 

Turned the Potholder over -
And looped the binding around to the back - 
To match the binding on the first side - 

I stitched a big "X" where the binding crosses itself - 

Put it up on the design wall for a photo - 
And realized that I started in the wrong corner -
The loop should be in the corner on the right - 
Oh, well - 
I'm not "fixing" it - LOL - 

The back side is a darker green - 
But it still might be too pretty to use - LOL - 

Maybe I'll finish up the other three - 
Then make some using wider strips -
And darker colors - 

Those should be pretty - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Ha ha....starting on the wrong corner is the type of mistake I make all too often.
Fortunately, it still looks great.

It's not a mistake. It's a design element. 😉 Looks great.
