It’s September so I starting my church fair sewing. Last year I tried to make 7 in square potholders. There were a few problems…Any ideas so I can overcome them?
Layers were top fabric, Insul Brite, warm and natural and bottom fabric. I machine basted the four layers together. They shifted so I pulled them apart and pinned them together. The layers shifted again and don”t understand why.
When I basted on binding, fabric moved again.
Should I fuse the battings together? Use cotton flannel in place of warm and natural?
Is there a best or favorite size for potholders?
The next attempt was an envelope sewed on all sides with a 3in opening fro turning. the fabric shifted on that one as well. I am using a bernina activa to sew and it appears not to have a pressure foot.
