Zakka potholders

This week I wasn't able to sit a lot behind my sewing machine. Laura moved back in with us, after finishing her bachelor, so now I have a smaller sewing space in our bedroom, since I was using Laura's room. I've done lots of reorganizing and there is still lots to do. But, I have my sewing space (((o:
Here are the 2 potholders for this weeks Zakka project. Never thought I would be able to make a round binding - but bias binding does magic!

Deze week heb ik niet veel achter de naaimachine kunnen zitten. Laura woont voor een tijdje thuis. Ze heeft haar bachelor gehaald en moest uit haar kamer op de campus van AUC in Amsterdam. Aangezien haar kamer mijn naaikamer was geworden, moest ik op zoek gaan naar een andere plek. Het is onze slaapkamer geworden. Ik heb veel opgeruimd en gereorganiseerd, maar er moet nog heel wat gebeuren. Ik heb wel week een eigen plek (((o:
Hier de 2 pannenlappen voor het Zakka project van deze week. Ik had nooit gedacht, dat ik een ronde bies kon maken - maar diagonaal snijden doet wonderen!

Does a smaller sewing space mean smaller projects? Great little pot holders and I'm sure it's nice to have Laura home.

Nice binding on the round. Is there a trick to it? Enjoy having your baby home. It wasn't long when she moved out, 3 years? Hugs Nat

Two perfect potholders! Once again, your fabric suits the project so nicely, and your workmanship is amazing. Bias binding makes perfect curves.

Those are darling. It certainly is a trade off. I'm sure you are glad to have Laura back but missing that space is a bit tough.

Debbie zei

Glad you linked them up to the {picnic} table! They are just the greatest! And super nice you found that veg fabric in your stash!

maria zei

Beautiful! They look too lovely to use though.
