Making Potholders


Potholders I designed using embroidered linens and hankies.

While I was looking for a piece of white fabric a week or so ago, I came across some of the embroidered linens and hankies that I had.   I pulled a few out that I thought I could use to make potholders.

I designed some of them today along with more Hen and Rooster Potholders.  I want to finish  working on Wendy’s quilt so I probably won’t have these all done till the end of this week or the beginning of next.  When I do I’ll put them in my Etsy Shop.

  1. 1/8/ Maria, would like to purchase 2 hen and chick pot holders (1 with a brown border and 1 with a red border), will have a $100 check coming, the difference is to support your work, photos, blog, etc. Susan Bond, Milwaukee .

  2. Very cute potholders! Looking closely at the fabrics you’re using, I can see some the exact same ones that I have in my quilting stash.

  3. I always admire your potholders. They are always so interesting. An extra fun thing for me is when I identify a fabric that I donated. This time it’s the blue with the little flowers in it. I made a dress for my daughter with it. I can still see it even thought I can’t find a photo of it. It had short puff sleeves and a white peter pan lace collar. It’s great that you are able to use left over fabric in such creative ways.

    1. Oh I love that Jill!! I can just imagine the dress you made your daughter using that fabric. I’ve had it al long time, and I believe that I used up the last of it on the potholders. But you never know, I often find another square of something I thought was gone forever!
