These are potholders for my daughter. Why buy them when mom can make you exactly what you want? She chose some really cute fabric, I think. It has all these "cooking words" on it:
These were fairly easy to make. I just cut circles out of the fabric and some Insulbrite, (I traced around a salad plate) then layered them, lightly quilted, and then bound them with bias binding. In retrospect, it was silly to cut the circles first. I should have quilted it first and then cut the circles, but I wasn't thinking. For the smaller ones, I just trimmed the sides of the circles to make an oval. It worked for me.
I'm also supposed to make some kitchen curtains for her, but the power was out so I didn't get to those either! Oh, well!
|Sad unmade curtains!|
The other thing I was going to do was staple some ironing board fabric on my small ironing board (which I use all the time!), but I couldn't because I really need to use the electric stapler for that. I had a decorator fabric on it as a cover, but it's gotten really scorched and I'm hoping the silver fabric works better. Oh, well again! Use your imagination!
Hope all your projects worked out this week! The hubs and I are at an academic conference, which is why it was so critical to do all those things the day the power went out. Good thing my real-people clothes were all ready to go, or I might have to try to look professional in t-shirts and capris!
Have a wonderful weekend! Here's hoping you don't have power troubles! Or weather ones, either!
