Sewing GiftsPicking fun fabric and fussy cutting makes for some great potholders for gifts.
|Okay measure twice and cut once. Obviously I didn't do that here!|
|Coordinating fabric makes two matching potholders but not they are not the same.|
Lay the two layers of fabric right sides together. Mine were 8" square. Lay two layers of cotton batting on top. I stitched with a 3/8" seam to be sure to catch all layers. It probably would have been better to change to a walking foot but with attention, a regular foot works.
|Preparing a Loop|
|A matched set because of the identical paisley background.|
|All packaged and ready for giving|
From the left over scraps I cut 3/8" strips, sewed them together to form strips long enough to tie the two potholders together.
Board Game Bag:
|My Scrabble Tiles Bag|
- the satiny lining as the tiles slip out easily
- the double draw string as it is easy to close
- the front pieces is velvet so it absorbs some of the sound as you lay down the bag.
|There it is. Of course this would make a unique bag for other board game pieces.|
