Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed with what to sew. Don't get me wrong - I love it and it relaxes me and is a great creative outlet - but my to do list seems so long I don't know where to start! Especially around the holidays, when I have so many things I feel like I have to do, it seems like I never have a chance to sew what I want to do, at that moment.
SO the other day I did! I made some cute little potholders with some of my scraps - a simple little sewing project but it was great to put together something, and finish it quickly - a nice feeling of accomplishment! Plus, look how adorable this watermelon themed one is, right?
Reminds me of little Rakia's swimsuit this summer!
I based it on this tutorial I saw a while back, but kind of freestyled it. Try it if you want some extra potholders around for your holiday baking - they make great little gifts too! So I did make a little dent in my to do list, after all!
