I made these for my sister-in-law for her birthday. It was my first time using binding, and I was pretty happy with how it turned out.



The potholders both have the green pattern on one side and the pink/yellow dots on the other, then (you can sort of see in the picture) the inside of the oven mitt is the pink/yellow dot fabric too.

These are wonderful! I currently have 3 half-sewn pot holders on my sewing table.. I got so fed up cause I can't seem to sew through all 3 layers without the fabric bunching up on one side and the layers getting crooked.. do you have any advice? Your sewn lines look wonderful and perfect!

I use a walking foot on my machine when I'm sewing vinyl, so I just left that on when I was doing the quilting stuff and it worked pretty well. I had some issues with getting the binding in the edges where it was folded over and there were more layers, but for the most part I think the walking foot helped. =)

Those look so perfect! I'm doing a similar project for a holiday gift, and I hope they look as good as yours.

I love personal swaps! I always need fabric, findings/notions, and cute handmade things!
