For the Gmas

I decided to make some things for the Grandmas for Mother's Day as well :) Grizz and I only have one Grandma each, and we treasure them so!

 I decided on potholders...  (these went to my gma)

 Using designer fabric I have on hand (I rarely buy designer fabric, but I love using it on projects like these!), I made each Grandma one square and one rectangle potholder.

 I also decided to throw in a hand towel to my gma - I made two of these while deciding what to make for my sister-in-law's birthday, but it just didn't seem right for her.

 I've already used one of the towels, but this one hadn't been used yet, so I squeezed it into gma's package. I'll post about them how I made them another time...

 And here are the potholders for Grizz's grandma's potholders.

Happy Mother's Day ~ my grandmothers are loved :)

**I use one layer of insul-brite and one layer of thin, cotton batting in my potholders. I save all of my batting leftovers from quilts for small projects like this! I believe that the square potholders are 8"x8" and the rectangular are 8"x10" - just don't ask me why I chose those sizes because I don't remember my reasoning! :)


  1. Those are so cute I'm sure your G'mas were thrilled to get something made by you. So thoughtful.

  2. I would love to follow your blog but I don't see a way to sign up :(

    1. Hey Patrica! I've added a few gadgets on the side that hopefully helps... sorry I didn't have them up before!

  3. Great projects. Love the towel.

  4. What wonderful gifts, I'm sure they just loved them! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Your potholders look so professionally sewn!!! What did you use inside the potholders as batting? Thanks for linking up your projects today. I've loved looking through them.
