Do you have an old towel and old strips of fabric at home? Get creative and create chevron potholders out of them! Chevron patterns are on-trend now on all home and kitchen decors in online shops. So why not create your own instead of buying one? Beth at My sewing room will help us make these super cute and easy chevron potholders. She used her leftover 1 1/2 inch strips of fabric from a honeybun package –  very resourceful and clever in repurposing fabric scraps! Watch the video below for the full instructions.



  • old towel
  • 10 x 10-inch square cloth
  • strips of cloth
  • 505 adhesive spray (optional)

Step 1:

Cut the towel to a 9-inch square. Lay the backing fabric facedown and place the towel on the top. Spray some 505 adhesive spray to hold it in place. Then mark the midline of the square.

Step 2:

Start with a 2.5-inch square at the bottom and add a 1.5-inch strip. After the first strip on the right, add one to the left. Try to use the same colors for the left and right strips and change them as you go up. Make sure to leave enough of the 1.5 strips to cover the bottom. Repeat the process until you cover the whole towel.

Step 4:

Outside binding. Join two strips to make a long strip and attach it to the back of the potholder. Turn it over to the backside. Fold the end of the tip of the strip to make a diagonal end, then start sewing on the fold all the way around. Stop at the corner a quarter inch away from the edge, then sew the corner in a little diagonal stitch. Pivot it and lift the binding – making a diagonal fold. Next, fold it right along the edge of the potholder. Start sewing at the top of the corner. Continue the same process until you reach the other end of the binding. Turn the potholder right side up and fold the edges over the top. Pin and sew it all the way around.


Now you have your chevron potholder!
