Christmas Gift Reveal

A pair of potholders I made for my sis-in-law in colors I'm very pleased with and she seemed to be too.

But a note about the "bias" tape: I didn't cut it on the bias. I was using scraps and would have had to piece it unreasonably to get a bias line. I also made the tape probably 4" to start before I folded the raw edges to center and that was much too wide. I ended up folding the tape under double to sew it to the back side, a sweary (as Angry Chicken says) project.

The second photo is blurry, but in my Christmas rush, I had the potholders wrapped before I realized it. So the photo is just For the Record of Colors & Fabrics.
