Pan Handle Covers
Project by Stephanie Marsh
You will need:
2 fat quarters (FQ) Heat resistant wadding Thread
1. Measure the length and circumference of the pan handles (s), mine were 6” x 3”.
2. I made a template based on these measurements, the template was 2” x 6.5”. I curved the corners at one end, set to one side.
3. Take the outer FQ and the wadding and place wrong sides (WS) together. Pin and tack to hold together ready for quilting.
4. Using tailors chalk (or erasable pen) mark a line across the fabric where you would like to quilt. Now take this to your sewing machine and sew along the line, then repeat at regular intervals to quilt the fabric and wadding together. Remove the tacking.
5. Taking the template made earlier but out the required amount in the quilted fabric and the lining (the second FQ). You need 2 quilted and 2 in lining for each cover.
6. Place one lining and one quilted piece right sides together and stitch, ¼ inch, along the short straight edge. Press seam allowance to one side.
7. To make the loop cut a strip 2” x 3.5” from the lining fabric, press in half lengthwise, then open up and press raw edges to centre, then fold back up again, stitch along long folded edge.
8. At the curved edge on once of the main pieces place the loop as shown below.
9. Now take 2 main pieces (one with and one without the loop), place right sides together, stitch all around, leaving a couple of inches gap in the lining.
10. Trim the seam allowances with piking shears or clip the curves. Turn right sides out, press seams and stitch closed the gap.
