Pot Holders

Just a quick little post today. We’ve needed pot holders for quite a while. Actually I wanted to sew some but then decided to crochet a pair instead. When they were finished, I thought they would need a little something and I stenciled numbers on. I used fabric paint to make sure that they are washable. I’m happy how they turned out.

I’m busy preparing my mannequin for the

2nd Annual Dress Form Ball at The Polka Dot Closet

and hope to see you there.

Hallo Julia,
Deine Topflappen sind klasse geworden, so schön schlicht. Momentan bin ich auch auf dem Trip, das weniger mehr ist.
Ganz liebe Grüße in die Ferne, Birgit

Liebe Julia wie schön, dass es wieder ein Posting von dir gibt - superschön, deine gehäkelten Topflappen , und die Idee, darauf Nummern zu schablonieren finde ich einfach nur GENIAL! Du hast so ein gutes Händchen für "das gewisse Etwas", das aus Alltagsdingen etwas Besonders macht!
Ich freu mich, dass dir unser LA-Mexican-Menü geschmeckt hat -
ganz lieben Dank fürs Mitreisen :o)
Fühl dich gedrückt - und hab einen guten Start in den März!!!
♥ Alles Liebe, viele Tierchenkrauler und ganz herzliche rostrosige Küschelbüschel-Grüße, Traude ♥ (George winkt auch ;o))

Hello sweetie,
Love your new pot holders that you have crocheted and you have created such a sweet vignette to show case them.
I'll need to make some new ones too now that we have our new slow combustion stove in the kitchen.
Drying tomatoes at present and bottling with olive oil, salt and fresh oregano. I'd love to share them with you!
Hope my last email arrived safely dear friend,
Sending lots of love and hugs,

Beautiful pot holders! I'm surprised you were able to get such clean lines on the crochet, without the paint bleeding under the stencil. Thanks for sharing at Knick of Time Tuesday!

Wow sind die schön geworden, fast zu schade zum benutzen!

Poppy said...

Such adorable potholders to complement the lovely kitchen gadgets, like your cake pan and creamer. A very charming vignette that evokes cozy culinary creations!

Happy Wednesday!

Lovely pot holders, but how can you bear to use them! Little burn marks and food sticking to them. Maybe you manage to use pot holders without messing them up. But not me, I'm afraid.
