This little book is full of ideas on making potholders, hotpads, oven mitts, etc. And they look really nice instead of those ugly old plain ones that you buy, which I have. So with a little bit of fabric, imagination, and little time you can make one of these precious little gems that you can admire while in the kitchen. I'm always thinking of making a different kind of gift (with food included, of course), this would be perfect in a basket of assorted goodies. So if I don't make my Mom those appliqued/embroidered tea towels, I certainly can make her a potholder or oven mitts! Here's a few sample photos.
Have a great evening!
