Tori and Hannah Sew Christmas
The first picture is the fronts and the second picture is the backs of the two pot holders Tori made Saturday. To make each pot holder, she stacked two squares of Christmas themed fabric right sides together with a piece of special pot holder/hot pad batting on top. Between the Christmas fabrics she placed a loop of braided red yarn she made from 3 single pieces of yarn. Then Tori stitched around the edges using a quarter seam allowance leaving a few inches open to turn the right sides of the Christmas fabrics out. She finished each with top stitching half an inch from the edges. Snow men, penguins, candy and Christmas red polka dots. Aren't they cute!
Tori is 10 and sits on the edge of a chair so she can press the sewing machine petal.
Hannah carefully arranged Christmas themed strips and scraps to make her pot holders. Aren't they lovely.
I'm very proud that Tori and Hannah like to sew and quilt.
