    My new "Potholders"

    My inspiration goes to francie yuhas, one of our dear members here. Her post "quilt joke" gave me the idea. So off to ebay for some fabric, a few days waiting for it to arrive and a few hours sewing. I have 4 new "pot" holders

    I hope y'all like them.

    Thanks Pojo,
    The machine is a replica of a Singer 99, my Aunt gave it to me before she passed away. The gnome guy is a cutie.

    As soon as I saw the title of this thread, I immediately thought of the original post you referenced. These are great.

    I have that same sewing machine, it is set up for a treadle, bought it that way and it is a beautiful machine. I never use it but would not take for it. Might just add a motor to it and use it, lol.

    We'll shows how dense I am......read and looked at pic and said...huh? So went back and clicked on reference....OH! But, I still didn't know there was/is a print like that. Cute, for those who recognize the plant...unlike me, who did not.....and don't think my friends or family would either....but, would be interesting to see looks on faces if given a "potholder"........ Hmmm, April Fool around the corner! Did you say eBay has fabric? I just may......

    Laughed out loud!! DH used to have an Egyptian style machine like that - used it so much he not only wore the decals off the black paint, he wore the black paint off the metal.

    Love your "pot"holders. I once bought some batik fabric that I thought had pot plants on it but was assured by my children that the plant had too many leaves for it to be pot. I thanked them for the assurances and walked away shaking my head and wondered how they knew. One was in 8th grade and the other in 5th grade.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    I NEED to get some of this fabric! Since I live in CO and it is a
    commodity that is sold here, I know that many people I know
    would love something made from this fabric.

    I also found this fabric on www.fabric.com
    Louise - Ya-ya to Zachary April 13 2015. I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world. Also collect handmade pincushions, sewing/quilting themed fabrics, and fabric in general.

    These are really cool. I like them.
    Never put off what you can do today, because tomorrow may never come.

    Great job on your "potholders" and thanks for sharing the the link to the joke as I missed the original post.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
