Don't forget, there's still time to enter to win some yummy fabrics here!
Yesterday I put together these yummy summer fabrics into some potholders to be included in a baking themed gift basket I'm putting together for my cousin's bridal shower next weekend.
I loosely used this tutorial but changed the the dimensions and used a layer of Insul Bright batting and one layer of regular batting. These were super quick and easy to put together, I just added a few echo lines of quilting to the outside of the seams and added a little ribbon and teeny tiny button as a hanging loop.
I will be keeping these in mind for neighborhood Christmas gifts, it would be quite easy to mass produce these in not a lot of time. I also had time to make up a matching Stay Put Kitchen Towel using Mary's tutorial from Pin.Sew.Press.
For a second I almost decided to keep these for myself, as I still don't have a set of potholders I've made, or a Stay Put Kitchen Towel for my own kitchen, but alas, that idea quickly dissipated as I remembered the other 20 things that are on my sewing list!
Looks pretty nice in my kitchen, don't ya think??
I'm going to put these with two jar cookie recipes, a set of measuring spoons, measuring cups and a matching wooden spoon and spatula set. I'll post pics when I get the basket together in the next few days...
