Cast Iron Skillet Handl Cover Tutorial


Main Fabric (Outer Fabric) – 6” x 7”
Lining Fabric – 6” x 7”
2 Insul-Bright Fabrics – 6” x 7”



Cut the four pieces of fabric as indicated above.


Lay the fabrics on a flat surface as follows:
     2 Inul-Bright pieces
     Lining fabric, right side up
     Main fabric, right side down

All the edges of all pieces should be even.


Sew across one short end (6 inch edge) using a ½” seam allowance.

Trim Insul-Bright close to seam.

Open the sewn piece so outer and lining fabric are right-side up. The outer fabric should be on one side and lining with Insul-Bright on the other side.

Fold the piece in half lengthwise with right sides together.

Sew along the long side using a ½” seam allowance but leaving a 3” opening in the middle of the lining. This opening will be used to turn the handle cover right side out.

Center the seam you just sewed in the back of the piece and press open.

You can leave the ends of the cover square or use a marking pencil and draw a curved line on each end. Stitch either straight across the short ends or along the curved line.


Turn the handle cover right side out through the opening.

Either hand or machine stitch the opening in the lining closed.

Slip the lining inside the main fabric.

The cast iron skillet handle cover is ready to use.
