Easy Sew Pot Holders
Once all your sewing is done, remove any pins you might have used to secure the pieces, and start clipping toward the seams being careful not to sever the threads.
Continue making clips approximately every 1/4" using the tip of a pair of sharp scissors until you have fringed the entire project. Then run the project through the washer and dryer cycles. The fringed edge will fray and you'll have a great potholder or trivet to use everyday. And frequent laundering will only make it better!
I'm sure you'll be able to expand on this simple technique. Please share your ideas and creations with us in your comments!
