First potholders



It was great fun to stitch these potholders! I created the designs on my computer, then used transfer paper and pencils to put the designs on fabric. The wool fabric is a bit lightweight (felted skirts), so there is a layer of heat-proof fabric in between the two wool layers. The reverse side of the potholders is the purple/teal plaid that you can see in the background.
