Potholders

Since the holidays, I have been sewing little else but potholders. The six inch blocks all turned into potholders, plus I came across Amy’s blog again and her very beautiful tutorial for potholders, and decided to try it out.

The most difficult part of sewing these was the binding. It came around all twisted and bumpy – awful! Some days later, I ripped it off again and used some ready-made bias tape.

The most fun part, I think, is embellishing the front sides. I like the idea of not making exact twins but rather making up two matching designs. And it really is fun to rifle through my drawers and bring to light some long forgotten scraps of lace or beads.

Binding the potholders still is the most challenging part but anyway easier than making hand made bias tape.
