ok so I’ll be posting my projects OUT of order as some I have finished, others I have yet to get to and some I am still in the middle of. So
Get started on those handmade holiday gifts! Now is the time to start especially if its rainy days or weekend projects
Here’s an idea… make quilted pot holder handles! They don’t have to be patchwork like this one, but it would be nice if you tried to find fabric to make it according to their kitchen decor.
Why not make fabric coasters, or hot ‘plates’ to go with it?
So with seeing that potholder, I thought why not make my own… I just won’t make it such a pain to make.
Plus of course all by hand
So for a test I used a part of a brand new pair of underwear because it had flames on it…
I hand sewed 3 of the 4 sides
stuffed it with polyfibre as thick as I could and as I sewed it shut I still added stuffing to it.
after that I sewed around in the black areas for a ‘quilted’ look
Folded over (as seen here) and sewed shut.
I plan on making some more as gifts for family & friends.. just need to find out what color their kitchens are or at least their favorite color.
When I tested the handle cover I did quite good as I had enough stuffing in it to not burn my hands. Sadly one problem… I made it too long or had the flame too high at some point and a little bit of it got burned one of the times we used it.
