    My fancy potholders

    Was just having some fun in my sewing room. Trying some of those
    new stitches on my sewing machine. It's not perfect but it should
    last a while. The hardest part was attaching those loops. Sewing
    through 12+ layers of fabric ain't easy let me tell you. At least
    I didn't break any needle.

    The purple one has matching purple embroidery but it looks black in the picture.

    Very snazzy! (You need a vintage machine to sew through multiple layers.)

    they are awesome!! love the Kaffee fabrics. I need to make a few out of batiks too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very nice, a good way to use up fabric. I don't use the loops so don't put them on. I don't know how many still hang their pot holders up like years ago.
