Little Things

 


I finished a couple of hot pads or potholders to go with dishtowels I embroidered and dishcloths I crocheted.  I use Insulbrite inside my hot pads along with either a piece of 100% cotton batting, and old towel or cotton flannel.    I used some leftover bits of rickrack for the hanger. I usually make myself a set every year to replace the ones my husband seems to burn up. 

And here's the reverse side. 


I made a bunch of other hot pads for gift giving but I need to finish the dishtowels for the sets before I blog about them.

Really cute gifts. I especially like the embroidered towels. They look kind of vintage.

Cute pot holders and towels!
I am going to make some towels with pot holders attached to hang on oven doors. I need them, so I thought they would be great Christmas gifts.

These are so pretty. My pot holders are getting a little bit worn, stained and ugly . . . time to be replaced, thanks for the inspiration.

I like the chickens! Is it too late to train your husband not to burn stuff?

I am trying to get myself organized to make some hot pads, etc, for Christmas gifts. Hopefully, within the next couple days I will have some made as well. :)
