Scalloped Potholders

I almost forgot to show you my lovely scalloped potholders!!!  First, in my WIP Wednesday post, I showed you my first side........here:


Well, well well well..........I was so proud of this UNTIL I made my second side and then started to stitch them together.  (It is a 2 -sided thick potholder).  Guess what?  I messed up on this one!!!!!  If you imagine this potholder is a clock, look at the 1:00 position near the center.  That just isn't correct.  Darn it!  And as a result of ONE missed stitch, I was short an ENTIRE SCALLOP.  One stitch people!!

So guess what??  This beautiful item is now a coaster.  lol  And I stitched a full 2 more sides to make the PERFECT Scalloped Potholder, which I dearly love.  And gave it away as a gift.  lol  

This pattern is SO easy, so fast.  Honestly, the hardest part was the very end when you stitch the 2 together.  Not my fave.  

And here she is, in all her glory:

New side 1 and side 2 - I jazzed up the gray side a bit more this time. 








I just love this!!  Many more will be in my future...I'm dreaming of all kinds of color combos as I write this. 

I may be linking to THESE parties.
