Overview

Potholders are perfect canvases for showcasing fabulous fabric, using simple embellishments, and trying out novel ideas—as these charming, nostalgic projects prove! They’re easy, beautiful, and great for anyone looking to stitch something small but wonderful. All that’s needed are basic hand or machine sewing skills to complete a darling butterfly-shaped potholder with rickrack antennae. A playful oven mitt, in bright red with embroidered flames, sports the word “caliente!” to remind the wearer to be careful. An introduction presents the vast range of textiles and embellishments available, and beginners will get the lowdown on batting options and guidelines for what makes a successful, functional potholder. All projects are showcased with full-color, close-up photography, and with any necessary templates and patterns.

This is a nice little book to have in your sewing/gifts/special occasion library. The projects are great for beginner sewers (and experienced) - they provide creative inspiration and color combinations. These potholders are also a great way to use up some of your fabric scraps - the designs and colors co-mingle nicely.

Book is a wonderful read, with lots of history about the kitchen potholders. Patterns are included and I have bought two more for gifts.

I wanted something to spark my imagination and here it is. I am having a good time, with a new hobby. I'm glad I could go to Barnes and Noble for a craft book like this. I did have to order it online, but with Barnes and Noble, that is extremely simple. I won't be able to gift any of my potholders; yet, but this book is giving me such a boost. I feel like, I'm just going to get better and better. I am so glad that I decided to get this book. It has simple ideas, but also has some advanced ideas.
