I was making some Wonky Squares aprons with the black background (instead of white) a while ago and found a red-themed square that I just adored the color combination of. So I made a second square just like it and thought I'd turn it into a pot holder. I needed to repair another beloved potholder in my kitchen, so the two projects combined gave me a reason to buy insulated batting. Here is how the Wonky Square potholder turned out. It is actually a pocket pot holder. Your hand can fit in between the two layers.
A lot of time recently has been spent in preparation for a friend's upcoming baby shower. I can't give anything else away about it just yet, since she's a loyal blog follower, but at least here is a view of the invitations, each one a little book. They were really fun to design and then make. My favorite part was putting all of them in the mail, a big dose of love going out into the world!
