I managed to finish up two potholders

Potholders/Dishclothes are such a  great way to practice stitches or say ,test waters if you can really endure the pattern for a scarf.

The Waffle stitch I loved_  the ombre sugar and cream yarn in this colour works out so well I think _

the Basketweave not as much although I do like the colour I’ve kind of got bored with it after doing so many projects in this colour.

If you are interested , you can find the pattern at Knit Bug

What really excited me about these potholders are the back! The green fabric I just adore, it was in the pack Shanna gave me.IMG_1885 I did a little stipple free motion practice on them, and then stitched it on the back with a walking foot.I really liked the  tutorial for the backing  I found .There are two parts to it check it out. part one part twoIMG_1886

Originally these were going to be Christmas gifts, but then I changed my mind, and only finished them now.Its a good thing I waited because, I found the perfect backing fabric and labels too 🙂

I found a nice little label kit at the craft store, that comes with a permanent pen, a stencil and a fusible tape
