    Pot Holder

    Please excuse all the horrid mistakes, I usually am a lot more perfection-istic. I was in hurry and didn't feel like ripping or re-cutting. Besides it was going to a guy and they don't tend to see flaws like I do. I was also using it as a learning piece, trying to play with all the new bells and whistles I've never had before that my new machine came with.

    Have fun with your new machine. He'll love the potholder- it's a great way to, as you said, "try out all the bells and whistles."

    While there is room for improvement, I think that's a fantastic practice piece! I love the way you used fabrics that are different, yet go together perfectly!

    ​Cute camo shamrock! Potholders are a great way to practice bindings.

    very nice masculine potholder. have fun with the new machine
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thank you all for the awesome comments.

    I bought a Juki f600; totally in love with it. This is the first machine I have ever owned that has decorative stitches, which is what incidentally mucked up my binding (which I usually do by hand). The Camo pattern was actually taken from the leg of the real army camo uniforms called BDU's that said guy used to wear. Which also mucked up my lines because it was a lot thicker than I thought it was going to be. The rest was Moda fabric I believe.

    I learned a lot about both the machine and material, I'm going to do it again to try and redeem myself. This is the first chance I have gotten to sew/quilt in over 4 years, so I am a bit rusty. Thanks again for looking.

    welcome from Vermont. I am still learning on my machine and have had it for several years. I practice on potholders, pillowcases, etc. and anything I need or myself . Look forward to your new projects.
