At Thanksgiving I gave my sister a little pre-hosting hostest gift. She is hosting us at Christmas this year, but we are really going up after Christmas, so I thought she'd like her gift early so she gets a bit more use out of it. She liked the potholders and thought they'd make a nice gift for a few people on her list.
They are on their way to her, but I thought I'd go ahead and share them so she can see them.
6 extra large pot holders (that's how I like them) in three sets of two. She asked for red with white dots and a light sage green worked in. The sage doesn't look like it matches, but I think it looks better in person. I like how how blue got in there too.
Potholders like this make up pretty quickly, It's the binding that takes awhile. I tried using store bought binding, but that didn't look nice and I tried machine sewing the binding, but that also didn't look nice. I went back to doing it by hand and just carried one in my purse pretty much everywhere I went for a week. People that I see regularly kept saying, "Are you still working on that?"
Here's her set:
