FO: a labor of love

Happy new year!

FOs: Christmas 2015 potholders

I've been wanting to share this set of gifts, but I just gave the last few away over the weekend, so now is the time!

I found this pin earlier in the year, and knew it would be a fun undertaking for my family. So, first, I chose two recipes (one for my side of the family, and one for E's).

I had them printed over at Spoonflower (I got one FQ of each, and managed to buy during a promotion). Then, I used a variety of kitchen-themed prints, including some of my favorites from Melody Miller's Picnic line, and some fun Spoonflower prints.

The majority of the sewing was done using this Nana and Company tutorial.

I modified the size to fit my Spoonflower panels, and I used the Insul-Brite I had on hand (I didn't buy more, so some of them have extra batting instead of Insul-Brite).

They were a big hit, and I have considered doing something similar for a future Christmas. Although, I might not make another pile of TEN potholders for a very long time.


  1. Love these!! I would love to make a pile like these!!

  2. Love this gift and your creativity!

  3. These are absolutely fantastic. Very thoughtful gifts, although I certainly understand it was a big undertaking to make so many. (sjn821 on Rav)

  4. Gifts from the heart are the best. Thoughtful, meaningful & beautifully made gifts are better than the best. They are so charming!
