Potholders and Pincushions


I hope everyone is having a nice day. I did some sewing this afternoon and got one of my swap projects completed. They are the potholders for Potholder Pass 2. My secret partner will be recieving these two potholders and get a little extra gift of a pincushion. I made the pincushion from some of the scraps left from making the potholders. I used the Tuffets pattern. This was my first tuffets pincushion. I love it. I can finally add that to my finished Schnibbles Projects. These are really modern. I tried to use the colors my partner requested. I checked out my partners blog and she seemed to like this style of fabric. So I really hope she likes them.

These are so cute! I'm taking my machine on a vacation with me and hope to tackle some smaller projects. I have the Tuffets pattern and walnut shells. Hmmm, I think you've inspired me to get 'em done!
