When I priced potholders (OUCH!) recently, I decided to make my own. The fabric I am using is the first I ever bought back in 2008 from the Marie Osmond line. It is a perfect match to my kitchen rug--mauve & teal..
May 05: Crosshatched mine. Very substantial with 2 layers of Warm & Plush 100% cotton batting and crosshatching. Should probably use cotton thread but I am sticking with Bottomline Gold with Tan bobbins. Using a coordinating cream fabric--2 actually as happens with remnants--for the binding.
May 06: Making a second set for my friend, Van. Her kitchen is black & white. Went to see her with a stash of fabric so she could select what she likes. Using black thread & solid black binding.
May 07: Crosshatched Van's. Made a small test potholder. Binding & loops for hanging are ready to sew. Will machine bind everything.
May 08: Only got one finished. Finding too many other interesting things to distract me.
May 10: Finished my set. Attaching the binding to the black set.
May 14: Finished the black set.
