Art of the Month: Happy Valentine's Day

Well, today has been very interesting. A day of mingling with crowds and checking out future prospects for living arrangements. Oh, yah and it's love day too isn't it?

As a gesture of love and in honour of the memories of past Valentine's Day mornings when our mom would set the table with cards and chocolates for us I made these heart shaped potholders for my sister. They were pretty straightforward to make and I used this pattern from Martha Stewart's site. I went for pinks and purples with green and white since her kitchen is green and red ones may be too Christmasey.

These are really pretty! I'm sure your sister loved them.

Hope you are braving the Olympic crowds with ease!

What a beautiful gift! It's practical, lovely, and far better than anything you could have bought. Good for you!

I just might need to make me some of those as well.

Was it very easy?

Hey One Pink Fish,

Just read the comments on the first page of the tutorial they helped me in terms of making the pattern larger (although I enlarged it to fit a full sheet of paper but it wasn't the exact size they had)and print out two versions of the template one for the main heart and one for the pockets and the bias tape part is always tricky for me but otherwise it was pretty straightforward. Email me if you have any problems.
