Ah Kim how disappointing I do believe that I bought the same potholders for that very reason! UGH You did a lovely job on yours!~hugs~
I'm glad I got mine on sale.would of been very unhappy if I had of paid full price. I will try them anyway
Fortunately, so did I...I would have been REALLY unhappy if I had paid in excess of $22 for them (which is the price they are selling them for today)...and if you are going to use the actual Christmas designs that came with the collection...beware...the designs are not digitized very well... there are numerous cuts and jumps that do not or should not have to be there...unfortunate...
How practicall !
I love the engineering mind that you & Sue have.......these are great, Kim....
I saw the other one too.....glad I didn't purchase. This looks more professionally done. Great job and idea~
Oh, me too...thanks!
This potholder you've done looks delightful& sounds like you'd used your skills to make it better too. Thanks for sharing your work. :~D
You potholder came out great! It's great that you are able to design yourself, saved you! Great job!
Lovely AND functional. Great job. You have "made lemonade out of lemons". Wish you sold your designs. mk
Looks amazing. You are such a talented lady.
So Awesome design!!!!Love the choice of your Fabric..Great work done!!Beautiful
the potholder looks very beautiful :-) I do not know how long I already want to sew one to me -lol
Beautiful oven mitt and a great saved design! I am just puzzled how you did it with no raw edges inside - it is a puzzle! Love your version with or without the snow flakes it is lovely!
So is there a link to purchase yours?
Looks great and my favorite winter colors
Bummer on your purchase! Hooray for your talent!
it may have been a lot of work Kim ,but its beautiful
That's gorgeous, Kim, love it!
I had a couple of huge disappointments too, it happened years ago when I bought doily outlines from two different websites and those designs were appalling, neither of the two designers had any clue how to design them. I didn't complain but never bought any designs from them anymore.
WOW, WOW, WOW!!! Kim, this is just gorgeous. I wish I had had this design last year as my annual ladies Christmas luncheon's theme was Snowflakes. This is such a useful gift Kim, you've done an excellent job on it. Well done, love Chris
You did a gorgeous job on this.Such a beauty.
Looks like a winner!
Oh! The smart one. I wish I had the ability to tweet and save others bad designs. Last year at this time I was stitching a hostess gift and the color sequence was off. This tells me that it was never test stitched. No one should put a design up for sale that had not been test stitched first. Kay
That's why I never buy when there is not a picture of the stitched design. Computer generated pics can be very misleading.
Nice design, I love the snow flakes and fabric, so something good came out of it. You always do such nice work.
Well I think this one is a real winner. Love your fabric choices too.
Beautiful job Kim! Very useful as well.
This type of potholder is so handy to use. Love the strip piecing too. Would be a great way to use up those scrap pieces that we all have. These would make lovely gifts. So sorry that the ITH design that you purchased was so disappointing
Thank you...yes disappointing, but that's the way the cookie crumbles, I guess...live and learn!
Well done!! I like this (clamshell) style of potholder, and I really like the strip piecing you did here. I have an ITH pattern from another website, but haven't yet tried it. Now you have me curious to go read their instructions to see just how much of it really is ITH.
Thank you...hopefully, you will have better luck with yours..
I have one ,also and am wondering! Kay
Nicely done. Love the colors of the fabric & threads.
Thank you for sharing Happy Stitching :~)
How do we get the ith pattern?
It is my own digitized ITH Potholder Pattern...
Well I think you have come up with a top-notch one. Love what you have done here. This will make great gift for anyone who goes in kitchen. Kim/Lillian
extra lovely my dear:):)hugs
Kim!!!! Another terrific project by you. You do fabulous work. Your designs are perfection. This is the problem with putting out money for an advertised item only to be so disappointed. I don't digitize so rely of freebies and some purchased designs. I get so disappointed when there are no written directions and no pictures to go by either. So, I am lost. Those of you who digitize are so gracious to give of your time and talent to those of us who request your designs. Just wanted to take the time to say a BIG thank you to you and all.
Thank you, Patti...
Nice potholder. Love the snowflakes. Don't understand why they could not do a better ITH job which would make it so much easier for all embroiderers.
Thanks, Martine...Yes it would!
Beautiful job you've done as always. Lovely fabrics and Snowflakes, some of my best friends are flakes. :P
Thank you Leaha!
It is so aggravating when you pay for a design and it doesn't live up to its promise, but your did a fabulous job saving/reworking this design! Bravo!
Thanks...and I agree, aggravating...but I would imagine more so for someone who didn't digitize...you'd be stuck!
Yes you are stuck and it's enough to make one want to learn to digitize if one could just find the time.
And then there are the sites that does not allow you to make any changes to a design. Too bad when you bought it thinking it was a "real" ITH design.
It is fabulous! I love the way it has a collar or sorts.
Thanks, Christine...it's a good size too..very workable..not too big, not too small...
I like this one.
I just love your design, it can be off putting when it is not what we think, I am sure if they said partly in the hoop they would be more acceptable
Ah, you are so right, Carol!
