Several years ago I helped make these starburst pot holders to raise money for our County Extention Club. It's almost like fabric origami. They are made out of scrap fabrics. The lady who was in charge of making these passed away several years ago and I wanted to try and figure out if I could make one from memory. Well, it took some doing but I finally got it done! 

The first one you make will be complicated because of all the folding but if you refer to the pictures hopefully it will make sense.  

Step 1: Supplies needed

You will need:

scrap fabric, iron, sewing machine, heavy duty sewing needle,  thread, scissors, straight pins, measuring tape.
Here are my pictures.
Very nice!
Almost finished with mine. Thanks for the tutorial!
Looks like a great scrap buster...gotta try!
