To sew a binding onto a pot holder, you will cut a width of fabric (WOF) strip 2.5 inches wide.
If you need to connect your strips to make a long enough strip to sew onto your pot holder, watch this video.
Learn how to Make a Double Fold Binding.
Decide which corner the loop to be on and start sewing from that corner attaching the binding to the back. Use your 1/4" foot and sew along the first side of the pot holder.
When you get to the first corner, stop 1/4" from the end and then sew into the corner. Take out your project and fold the binding back at a 45 degree angle. Then fold it down so the folded edge aligns with the top edge of the pot holder.
Put your pot holder back under the foot and start sewing 1/4" from the edge. Don't forget to back tack. Continue sewing the binding on until you get to the first corner.
Flip the binding out so you won't sew over it. Stop stitching 1/4" from the edge. The binding should look like this:
Next turn the binding to the front pushing the corners to turn them. Use binding clips to hold the binding in place all the way around. Fold the corners so they are mitered corners.
For the loop, fold up the seam allowance and then fold down the binding over the top. Iron it flat.
Use a fancy stitch like the serpentine stitch to sew the binding down. Start sewing from the loop fabric and sew all the way around the pot holder. Here is a close up of the serpentine stitch

Finally, fold back the loop fabric to make the loop and zig zag over the raw edge. Go over it twice to be sure it will hold.
