I’m am really getting tired of all the snow and winter weather so I decided a colorful project was in order. I happened to have some Insul-Bright on hand so I grabbed some fabric from my stash and had fun making a double-handed pot holder which was one of the many fun projects in Kitchen Stitches: Sewing Projects To Spice Up Your Home. This project brightened my day!

I received a copy of Kitchen Stitches: Sewing Projects To Spice Up Your Home, compiled by Karen M. Burns and published by Martingale which is a wonderful new book full of projects in a variety of styles. The baguette tote on the front cover is beautiful and on my list!

We always use place mats on our table and the colors in these are so neat! There is even a table runner to match.

    I have never made a pot holder but THIS kind makes sense! I usually use the gloved kind because those tiny little square pot holders do not offer much protection. This long thick sort is a great idea / I'd actually use it! 🙂
