Make summer fun with DIY camper potholders – free quilting pattern

Quilting, Sewing Patterns

With DIY camper potholders – complete with a free quilting pattern to make them – you can put a smile on your face in the kitchen even if you’re not going anywhere, right?! We mean…. these are seriously too cute!  As you know, we love Route 66 here in my house, and the dream is to go on it with a camper van just one day. Inspired by these camper themed potholders, let’s replace our old grubby pot holders with a set of new happy kitchen linens.

As well, these unique pot holders of course would be fantastic gifts to give to your outdoorsy friends, who’d love to get a set of retro camper hot pads. In fact, I know of some people who actually collect different shaped and themed potholders. Well, this set would be for in their camper van.
