sewing time - making potholders

The inspiration for this collection of potholders started with a flower, a Marimekko Flower. The flower was on a white background with a bit of careful cutting & stabilizing it now sits on a patched black n white background. With top finished I created a sandwich by layering the top with a layer of Insul-Bright, a layer of cotton wadding and then a piece of cotton fabric at the back. The layers are held together with several rows of stitch it was then cut into a circle shape by using a bread n butter plate for the shape. The edges are finished with a red & white striped bias. Using fabrics from the stash I sewed a few more, making a collection of useful / decorative potholders.
