Anyway, after they left on Sunday, and my girls were at a rehersal, I felt the need to make something, so perused the internet and came up with these two items:
1st off a pot holder:
This is the link to the tutorial: http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2010/06/quilted-potholder-tutorial.html. Elizabeth has an amazing blog and some fabulous tutorials. My pot holder does not look nearly as proffesional as hers, but it looks great in my kitchen, and will probably never get used, because I don't want to mark it!
It really was so easy to make and such a clever idea! It is weighted with some rice in the pincushion, under the wadding. And if you have never checked out sew mama sew before either, there are loads of ideas on there.
Hope you all had a productive weekend too
