Over at HMQG, we love birthdays. We have a master list and everyone brings a small pressie for the person whose special day comes after them. I wasn’t at the meeting last month, but Fi’s birthday is a week before mine. She made me this badass potholder:
Apparently no one in the guild has a birthday between January 9 and February 8, so I always get to make Beth’s gifts. Last year, I made her a pouch and gave her a fat quarter of a coordinating print. Here’s an in process shot:
This year, I wanted to do something a bit different. I decided to conquer my fears and try my hand at bias tape. I used a store bought potholder as a reference point and came up with this.
I know Beth will love the Tammis Keefe kitty print, so I included a fat quarter as well.
It came together really quickly and I think this size and shape will come in really handy — I can’t wait to make more potholders.
Hmm … should I call them pot-mitts, instead?
