i'm working on so many things right now that my head is starting to spin. I'm dusting off some older FOs for blog fodder while i get myself organized.
I made this potholder quite awhile ago. i need to replace the ones in our kitchen and i've only managed to make one so far. i used fabric selvedges and foundation pieced them to a layer of thin cotton. I quilted to one layer of cotton batting and one layer of insulbrite, but next time i think i'd use 2 layers of cotton because it doesn't feel quite thick enough.
the backing is a japanese fabric that i bought on sale. it's not my favorite fabric but it works well for kitchen items.
I made a box bag from Remix fabrics. i used this tutorial (without the vinyl) and it's one of my favorites. the only change i'd make next time is to replace the tab with a handle.
i used lightweight interfacing and my bag was pretty floppy, so i made little pintucks like on the Jane Market Bag to help the box hold it's shape. i also zigzagged the interior seams rather than pinking them. i will definitely make a few more of these--they are so useful. right now this one is holding my latest knitting project.
