Potholder Pass Round 7 was a little different … not only did we make potholders, but also added a cute bag/tote as well! The potholders could be any shape but square and there were a few different bag patterns to pick from. My partner was very open to my imagination and really only requested oven mitts.
So that’s what I made.
One of my partner’s favorite colors is blue … or in my interpretation, aqua :) I had a few strips left over from a fabric square swap that I used to piece the oven mitt and matched that against the colors of the double-mitt-grabber-thing (does it have a name?) I had fun with these fabrics, so I hope my partner likes them just as much as I do!
Her bag pattern of choice was the “Wrap It Up” Bag by sewtakeahike. It’s such a fabulous pattern because 1) it’s an easy pattern to follow, 2) when you’re all done using it you can wrap it up into a small bundle for storage, and 3) you can make it reversible. So of course I wanted to give my partner very different bag choices depending on shopping mood!
*Update: 5/25 note from partner … “Thank you so much! I am super pleased with everything, and you were VERY generous! I am already using the bag (brought some stuff to work with me), and the ovenmitt and potholder is tucked away to be used ASAP!!”
