Just one little finish today ~ not quilting exactly, but it involves the use of my sewing machine!
I tried out a new tutorial to make some last-minute gifts ~ microwaveable fabric bowls by Kathy at Tamarack Shack. Kathy defines these as "a hot pad that allows you to take a hot bowl right out of the microwave without burning your hands!" Here are a couple of pics from her tutorial:
I made my first set (just the 8" and the 10" for now) out of some nautical/beachy fabrics. The tutorial is well written, with lots of photos ~ easy to follow ~ and I LOVE the way they turned out! The only change I made was to stitch across the diagonals on each side.
As you can see, they're also reversible ~ bonus!
Linking up with Gingersnaps Quilts for TGIFF and crazy mom quilts for Finish It Up Friday.
