Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

The Cutest Potholder - Don't You Agree?

I found this great tutorial over at Riley Blake Designs, submitted by Jina Barney, for the easiest and cutest potholder I've seen in a while.  If you haven't been to that website there are some really cute (and free!) patterns.  I love Riley Blake fabrics - the quality is outstanding and the colors so rich.  I made the potholder from scraps in my stash - not Riley Blake ones this time because I don't have enough of their fabrics to have scraps yet.  :(
I do have a wonderful stack of fat quarters that I'm petting every time I go in the sewing room though.  As soon as I get another couple of UFOs taken care of I've got a lap quilt in mind for those.

This is the potholder made from their pattern:

Hey Marlene,
Your makeover looks great, even though you didn't need one.

The potholder is very cute; I'll definitely hop over and check it out!

This is one of my favorite patterns to make, but not as a potholder but with 6 -five or four inch charm squares. The 6th one is for under the folded pieces. I also like to fold them as rectangles and add an apple cinnamon teabag for a wonderful scent. Cute fact -you can put the base of a wine glass in the middle opening as a 'shoe'.

Now that is really cute and a great use of pieces.

It's darling. And I am cringing with the thought of the present state of my potholders and the idea of what would become of yours if it were in my kitchen. *shudder*

Thanks, I just printed off the pattern!

Oh! This is the same design I made about 15 years ago... as drink coasters! Maybe yours is larger, but when made about 4"X4", it's the perfect glass size. An easy-peasy project!
