Going Potty!

Thank goodness it's Friday!

I decided to get ahead of the Mother's Day gift making (30th March here in the UK) and make something for mum!  (needing an excuse to deviate from work stuff didn't factor at all.....much!)

Potholders for Mothers Day Mar14

I had a mini charm pack of Happy Go Lucky (from FQR last year) and some leftover jelly roll strips, which went perfectly with my stash of coloured bias binding!

These 10" potholders have heat resistant wadding inside, and are backed with non-slip table protector stuff (sorry, don't know the proper name!).

I'm really pleased with how these turned out, and think they'll look great on mum's black marble worktops.

I have a non-work Saturday to look forward to tomorrow, with a night out with the girls! Bliss!

Have a great weekend!

  7. I love them! My mom would not make them for me so I think it is finally time to make some for myself. So when are you coming south? Have a great night out and enjoy a no-work Saturday. Hope you also have sunshine

  9. Great idea with the non slippy stuff on the back. I was speaking to my gran today, who reminded me my parents are off to India a week on Monday. Guess what I've been working on today lol

  13. Lovely colours, I made some pot holders a few Christmases ago and they were surprisingly time consuming! Great idea putting the non slip fabric on the back, must admit that that didn't occur to me!
