I tried to coordinate them with the tea pots that were also part of their gift. They might be a little large for the pots but will protect the table from the heat of a pot full of hot water and they can be used as potholders too.
The next photo was sent to me from a reader of my blog following the tutorial I posted on this blog entry.
She helped her granddaughter make these potholders when they had a sewing day together recently. Aren’t they cute? She did such a good job too for a young girl. Her grandmother said if she were making them again she might cut the batting a little smaller so it wouldn’t have a chance to peak out. I think that would be a good idea – the 1/2” smaller size worked for me but a child would have more trouble keeping the batting hidden under the cotton print and cutting it smaller would solve that problem. Thanks Carol for sending the photo!.
