Hold the pot...
After many interruptions in my life (some good, some not so good *sigh*), I was finally able to set aside a bit of time to sew. My fabric finally came in at JoAnn's last week so I've been working on my roman shades, but the other day was able to make a couple of pot holders. It was great to complete a project in an afternoon, as the roman shades are quite labor intensive. :0)
I used the same two fabrics that are in my window valance. (The shades are made from the white & green swirly fabric.) I appliqued a heart - cut with my Cricut - on each front. There are two layers of terry cloth inside so they're flexible, yet quite heat resistant. They were fun to make - so much so that I am thinking they might make nice Christmas gifts! If you'd like directions on how to make your own, please email me or post a comment. Have a great day!
