FNSI: Christmas in July!

potholders front

It has been a few months since I participated in Heidi & Bobbi’s Friday Night Sew In and I sure missed it!!  There are 110 participants this time! 

I figured since it’s July, I should make this Christmas in July since I am trying to stay ahead of the game making my gifts so I can have a stress-free holiday!!    So I decided to make some potholders as gifts, which I believe can appeal to lots of people.  It comes as no surprise I decided to make a few for our house as well *wink* because I had to ‘test’ how they came out & how I would proceed, right? 

Well my idea is to do some scrap busting but then I remembered I had this gorgeous fabric that I made John’s Christmas stocking out of last year and my brother-in-law loves purple so the one on the left will be perfect for him.  The one on the right will be ours since we love green more than purple. 


I loosely followed a few tutorials: Scrap busting potholders and Quilted patchwork potholders.  I quickly decided I would rather make the style on the left since it doesn’t have binding, therefore less work and I can put the little holder thing in the corner.  It’s difficult to do that with the binding style. 

Can’t wait to make more scrappy ones this weekend!!  Thanks for stopping by!
