With all the buz about Heart Potholders...I thought I'd give digitizing some a, here they are! I love them! They are done in two hoopings (all but the final topstitching (optional) around the heart which was done on my sewing machine...and these were done in an 8" x 12" frame...I know...big frame...I am working on trying them out in an 8" x 8" my fingers crossed, but I have high hopes. As soon as I have the instructions detailed, I will post in DBC if anyone is interested. AND, I think these would qualify for Sue's challenge as they were both done from just scraps in the bin...

These are very nice!!

Where do you go to the 'DBC' to get them free?? I love anything fast and anything that would also sell for making some money for our county homemaker group. We do all kinds of support for our county but it takes cash. We could do this as a group if you so kindly give permission as we have an embroidery club I am head of--just to keep the group going. Boy--this style is years old but you know what I've found--what goes around eventually makes its way back--only in a new way and by the younger set. Hard to throw something out nowadays because you know that style will come back in. These are such wonderful colors and done in perfection.

When I did these, I did them in 5x7, 8x8, 6x10 and 8x12...they take a bit of time, but are well worth the effort!

by spendlove Moderator 26 Feb 2013

Excellent use of scraps! And a versatile design - well done.

by ansalu 26 Feb 2013

What a good idea to make a ith-design. Love your colors and the nice fabrics.
My hoop is much too small (5x7) so I will try the pattern from Martha Stewart for the sewingmachine (here the link for the others with small hoops :o)
Greetings, Bettina

laffma1 by laffma1 26 Feb 2013

I've made this pattern, and it works out well. You can either stitch the outside edges as a normal seam, or use seam binding to cover them (making a more finished looking edge. Both turn out great. Good luck!!
