Introducing Potholder Pockets!

This weekend has flown by Way too fast!!

This morning started off with brunch, Baconator Pitas,at least that is what Mr. P is calling them :)  Tomatoes and lettuce fresh from the garden,yum!

This is one of two sets of potholder pockets using pockets from kids jeans.

This is the second set,can you see where I ran out of gold thread?  It was super hard to sew by the top corners of the pocket because of the metal decorations.

This set has an older veggie print from Joann's on the back side,courtesy of Mom :)

Also from Joann's,this herb print is from summer before last.  The larger the jeans the easier it was to sew the decorative stitch around the edge of the potholder.

Another veggie/harvest print courtesy Mom.  Tired of these yet?

This is the last set.  Yes yet another print from Joann's,this one is a lot more recent tho.  I really like this print and wish I had purchased more.  These pockets have been running around in my head for a while now,just waiting for some time to make them up!  Last week I ended up breaking a pair of scissors cutting up a pile of jeans,so that these could be made.  Next time I think that the kitchen scissors will be a better choice :)

Now to find time to list them in my etsy shop :)

Yet another flavor combination,BellaVitano Raspberry cheese,and Black Walnut.  Turned out wonderfully.

Have you tried the oatmeal breakfasts yet?  No?  You don't know what you are missing if you haven't!
The flavor this week,strawberry and chocolate mint.  I can hardly wait until breakfast ;)

Have a great week!
