    Pretty Little Potholders - design inspiration!

    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.

    Loved It!

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

    Supurb for a Beginner

    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.
