Red potholders

Preparing and testing out more ideas for an Artisan sale in red, which is the colour of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I saw this cute leaf potholder pattern on Pinterest and decided to order it from Patchwork Pottery

Here’s what the back looks like. 
And a close-up of the cute buttons. The pattern says to sew them on with embroidery floss, however I think my son has borrowed/claimed mine!
I’m not sure about this idea yet, the first set seemed like a lot of work, and I should have cut bias bindings (opps).   I’m also not sure about leafs in red, even though you will find them in nature.  I’ll give these another try in next month’s colour and then decide if I want to continue making them.  Will they be a seller?

  1. I would buy those, Edith. The leaves look gorgeous in RED for this month's RSC!!

  2. I love them. Without the loop they would make coasters or mug rugs too.

  3. Most people will be buying them to match their kitchen, so it won't matter if a blue leaf isn't natural. I like them, I say forge ahead!
