Potholder Pass 9

Hi all,

I joined in with a swap for house shaped potholders and have been working on them over the last week.

It took me a while to decide what to actually do but I came across this great garden print in my stash and that set the ball rolling….

I am really pleased with how they turned out. I didn’t have a pattern so I was winging it. I should have measured them but they are approximately 8” wide x 11” tall.


I found some fabric with people dancing on it so I put that in the windows…there’s a party goin’ on!


I even broke into my Hometown layer cake to make the roofs, I love the red roof! 

I hope my partner likes them!

There was a sewing day today at Christine’s….I sewed like crazy but need to do some pressing before I take a picture of my minor achievement!

Great company, great food (awesome muffins made by Christine) and uninterrupted sewing time equals one very happy girl! Thanks Christine!

You did great with the theme for the potholders, they look great and your partner will be sure to love them. I wish I lived closer so I could have been at Christines. Glad you achieved a lot.
