As I said in my first post, after the Zombie costume, I was OFFICIALLY hooked on http://www.prudentbaby.com/. Maybe the correct word is stalker?? Yes, I am a Prudent Stalker. That's totally okay, at least I think it is, and totally a good thing. They give me SO many GREAT ideas and on top of ALL the ideas they also have AWESOME contests.
One day Jamie ( http://prudentadvice.com/) delivered to her readers another excellent DIY on how to make a "Pretty Potholder." (http://www.prudentbaby.com/2010/12/pretty-potholders.html) Then Jacinda (also with Prudent Baby, http://babyblogplus.blogspot.com/) posted her "Pretty Potholder : 2. (http://www.prudentbaby.com/2011/01/pretty-potholder-part-2.html) There was also the "Scrappy Potholder." (http://www.prudentbaby.com/2011/01/scrappy-potholder.html) The BEST thing about these potholders (other than how awesomely easy and cute they were) was that they were giving away 2, count them TWO sewing machines to whomever made the best ones. Do you need more inspiration than this?!?
So, I got started on my potholders. The only problem was, once I started, I could NOT stop. They were so easy and thanks to my WONDERFUL Mammaw, Opal Pearl Seals, I have SO much fabric that was just the perfect size for these. I made 13 in all.
I know you will be surprised to hear that I didn't win, being that my sewing is excellent and all (wink, wink) but when you see then winners you will know why I didn't win. The ladies that won made AWESOME potholders. I mean, I was sitting at the computer, looking at them and my mouth was wide open. WOW!! Did I say mention they were AWESOME?!? Here is the winners post- http://www.prudentbaby.com/2011/02/winners.html. As Jamie say, "ADORBS!!"
So here are a few of mine. And hopefully, my sewing skills continue to improve. : )
