I loved the look of these potholders, and the clever idea of tucking a recipe card and spatula into the pocket. So perfect for gift giving on their own or with a home baked goodie!
But then I wanted something that was not Christmas-y, and because I love kitties, I chose to make a second one out of The Highlands Collection using 8749 Cattitude-Cocoa and 8748 Don’t Fence Me In-Cocoa. (I can’t get enough of those faces!)
Because the cat faces are directional I had to pay attention to how I cut out my pocket piece.
You will also need 20667 Insul-Bright and scraps of batting (don’t you love it when you can use up some of those scraps you’ve been saving?)
These really do go together super fast–even the binding is machine stitched down.
