It started when I went into the barnyard a few weeks ago and there was the gray hen standing on Suzy’s back. I was actually quick enough to get a picture before the gray hen jumped off.
Since then I’ve been thinking of a Suzy and Hen potholder.
Last week I started making the drawings for it. This is how it went….
I made a bunch of drawings. Every day I’d do a few more, till I got comfortable drawing Suzy’s face and body. Till it became second-nature.
Then I waited till I felt like I wanted to try it on my sewing machine. That happened this morning.
I did a few practice drawings using my sewing machine, getting the colors right. I decided to stitch them on Vintage linen napkins that I have a large supply of. You can see some of the pattern of the napkin in the potholder.
I found it didn’t take long to feel comfortable and confident enough to start making the finished potholders. I stitch each potholder individually, so they’re all slightly different.
I’ll be making 20 Suzy and The Hen Potholders. I should have them all done late next week. They’re $25 each + $5 shipping. If you’d like one you can email me here at [email protected]. I take checks and paypal.
