A Surprise and a Paisley Pot Holder

First off….
I have such a wonderful surprise for you guys!

Tomorrow Sarah from Adventures of Our Fami-Ly and I will be trading blogs for the day.
She has a fantastic guest post ready for you guys.  You’re really going to love her!  Then you can hop on over to Adventures of Our Fami-Ly and see the project I’m sharing over there…it’s a good one!

Here’s a little preview:

Yep, I’m at it again!  I just love this fabric!
Now I have the whole set!

The Oven Mitt Tutorial
This was super simple.  I took 2 pieces of fabric and cut them just a tad bigger than my old pot holder.  I also decided that I wanted to add a little border for embellishment so I cut 2 strips from the kitchen towel I used for the Oven Mitt.  I then pinned the fabric (nice sides facing inside) and the towel strips folded in half facing inside.  I sewed them up- leaving a 2 inch opening so I could flip it right side out.  Then I just stuffed the old pot holder inside and finished sewing it shut.  Finally I added a little piece of fabric to make a loop so I can hang it up.

Sorry there’s no tutorial pics…. I got so wrapped up in making these that I forgot to take pics.
