Even with the rain this morning, the trunk of the giant maple tree behind my studio was still dry. The craggy bark works as and an endless amount of hooks to hang my potholders and photograph them.
I have come to love moss-covered bark on the tree as the background for my potholders. And the shaded lighting, even when the sun is shining, shows the colors most accurately.
The seahorse fabric that I used on these potholders is from a handmade apron, I’m guessing from the 1970s. The rest of the fabric is a mix from my stash, some old some newer.
I did save one of these SeaHorse Potholders as I wrote I would when I made them. And one has already been sold to Sharon, who reminded me that it’s the male seahorse who carries the babies.
My Seahorse Potholders and the Intuitive Scrap Bin potholders (made from the fabric in my scrap bin) below are all for sale in my Etsy Shop. They’re $18 each + $5 shipping for one or more. You can see them all and buy them here.
