I had my Secret Santa gift to make and Barb wanted to make one too. Its done!
We have them done!
Take a look at these. Same pattern, different fabrics.
|This is mine. We also made a potholder.|
|This is Barb's. I love this fabric.|
I decided to put a "label" in mine. You can see what I put on and then I put the recipient's name, address and telephone number. (Yes, its hidden cause some of the girls on the forum read this and I don't want them to know who I'm sending it too.) If it is accidently left behind, whoever finds it can return it.
I had a lot of fabric left over so I made another potholder. These potholders are based on the criss-cross coasters that I found on the web last year.
There is one thing when you make these. Make sure the folded side of the rectangles is towards the middle. I nearly goofed on one side when placing it. Thank you Barb for catching it.
I've made up a pdf of the instructions that you can print off.
When the mail came my What's Cooking magazine had arrived. This is the festive special.
Oh, the good stuff inside. I can't wait to get cooking. Some of it is just decadent and then there are the casserole recipes. How did they know I need a new casserole dish to prepare.
This is the Canadian magazine. My friends in the U.S. probably get Food and Family. Some issues are just a little bit different. Check out Kraft's website if you don't already get it. My word, girls, its free!
