For Christmas I made my daughter Jen and daughter-in-law Victoria casserole carriers and potholders. By now I should be used to the dark pictures my camera takes but alas, I'm not. It probably has more to do with the lighting in my house and not the camera. Anyway, here are the gifts I made.
The potholders were made using patterns from Lori Holt's book Farm Girl Vintage. I didn't use her potholder directions though. They were too large for my liking. Basically the same just not as wide of a border. The carriers are a conglomeration of a couple of free patterns I found searching the web. Both sets turned out great. And I certainly had fun making them. One of Jen's potholders was supposed to be a sheep but it required some hand stitching and by the time I did that it was no longer fit to be a gift. Some day I'll learn.
