Wow, I love how you did the pinup's figure outline in a white dotted line instead of a solid one... Also, did you do a french knot on the stool? (I can't see too well in the pics)

Those look great!  Did you stitch them on finished potholders, or did you stitch it on fabric and then make the potholders yourself?

the process was actually kinda long... i got the potholders, intact, at a dollar store for really cheap.  i un-did the cross stiching along the face of them and then undid the stiching along the edge so i could easily get my hoop around the material and iron-on the transfer.  then i wrapped the edge and sewed it back together by hand once i finished the embroidery... you can still kinda see the 'diamond' shapes on the fabric from the stiching that was along the face but i decided to just leave it as is, i kinda liked the effect.

thanks for the compliments too!  really appreciate it

Wowza!
Good job!  I like how you used dashlines instead of solid ones. 
The foot stool is great!
And of course the panthers are very cool.
