I’ve been working madly on a recently discovered Flower Potholder pattern I found on Ravelry designed by Jennifer Martin last week. I know that I love them when I’m working on one flower and already thinking of the next color combination to make! There are hundreds of examples to look at on Ravelry and get some inspiration on color combinations too.
I’m using a variety of cottons by Sugar & Cream and Bernat for these lovely flowers. You actually make two of them and then stitch them together for extra thickness so you won’t burn yourself. My favorites so far are the ones with multi-colored fronts with solid red on the back. (I love a little red in the kitchen). They are quite large, approximately 8” in diameter and each flower has 15 petals. The response on my Facebook page last week was very high when I posted this pattern. I’ve had several requests for these and have been making them ever since! I want to make some for me too 🙂
I hope you give them a try, they are really beautiful in person. They make great hostess gifts, house warming gifts, Mother’s Day gifts, of course Christmas gifts, or just because!
It’s official, Spring is here. I love this time of year when the flowers are starting to bloom and it is nice outside. School is almost out and everyone is looking forward to summer. Here are some spring photos I took recently of some flowers we planted. Did I mention that I love flowers?
