#54 Potholder pressies

I came across some really natty fabric that I thought Mum would appreciate, so decided to buy some potholders and then recover them with said fabric. Well, potholders turned out to be pretty elusive, so in the end I bought some heavy duty tea towels from John Lewis (designed for handling hot pots!) and made my own. They were so easy to make I also did one each for my two English sisters in law :)

Happy new year!! Holly x
