Look at my cutie tootie little toy sewing machine I picked up for my sewing room. It was super clearanced at Hobby Lobby for 8 buckaroos! I couldn’t pass it up.
We’ve got a busy couple of days ahead of us. This morning I was supposed to go on my daughter’s field trip to Moo Ville (a dairy farm.) She INSISTED that I go. Soooo….I got the day off of work, got girls all ready and then I got myself ready (make up and EVERYTHING lol) , packed our lunches, then headed to the school. When I got there Patiences’ teacher said that there wasn’t going to be room for me!! It didn’t break my heart let me say =)~
Tonight we have Parent Night for the girls Karate class. They will get their yellow belts and have a banquet.
Friday I work, then when I get home I have to take the girls to Spring Frolic at the school. Saturday I teach my apron class and Saturday night is our Wine Tasting Party!!
Busy Busy Busy!
I made up a quick pot holder/hot pad to hand out as an extra at my apron class and thought I would share it with you girlies!
This way it’s a hot pad:
And this way it’s a pot holder:
Easy Shmeasy Pot Holders
Insul-Bright batting (you want this type because it’s heat resistant)
Fat ¼ main fabric
1/8 yard binding
Grommets and grommet tool
From Insul-Bright cut -one 10” square
– two 4 x 10” rectangles
From main fabric cut -two 10” squares
-two 8 x 10 rectangles
From binding fabric cut – two 2 ¼ inch strips
Sandwich the 10” square of Insul-Bright batting between the two 10” squares of main fabric. (You may baste however you like, for the sample safety pins were used) Quilt as desired.
Press the two 8 x 10 rectangles of main fabric in half length wise. Place the 4 x 10’ of Insul-Bright between the fold and quilt as desired.
Place the two 4 x 10” rectangles at the top and bottom of the
10” quilted square, matching up the raw edges. Pin in place.
Sew around all four sides using ¼ seam allowance.
Place grommet in the upper right hand corner.
Bind the potholder as you would a quilt and enjoy!
