pretty little potholders

Ever since Amy posted her pretty little potholder tutorial, I knew I had to give it a try. And so this weekend, instead of forcing myself to work on a quilt I don't feel like tackling right now, I made some potholders.


I raided my stash for some pretty flowery fabrics and got to work. Oh, I know, this white Heather Bailey fabric is totally impractical for a potholder, but it was soooo pretty, I couldn't not use it :)


 Aren't they wonderful? Just look at that sweet little ruffle, such a perfectly adorable "Amy" dose of pretty. I hope you'll stop by Amy's blog (nanacompany), her attention to detail is simply amazing.



I'm adding these to my pathetically small pile of handmade Christmas gifts. Hope to get inspired and find my Christmas sewing mojo soon.

  6. These are adorable and I love your fabric combinations. I have some of that Nicey Jane print too and I have never been able to figure out what to do with it, but it is so darn pretty!

  11. These are so pretty! They look practically perfect in every way, from the fabrics to the cross hatches to the ruffles. Sometimes it's nice to have fancy stuff in the kitchen that is only used for special occasions.
