Potholders complete!

Well, I almost passed my deadline for Potholder Pass 2, but just in time I have them completed.  I'm almost embarrassed to show them, but I will.  Let's just say that I'm learning.  
These are the first things I've ever done machine binding on.  I've always done it by hand before.  I hope my swap partner won't be too offended.  I did have fun though, and I'm sure that my next attempt will be much neater!  I also sent along a little tea towel that I made from weaver's cloth and some of the binding fabric.  I think it turned out really cute.
The fabric that I used was Soiree honeybun from Moda.  I really like the springtime feel it has.  I am all about springtime right now.  Just waiting for that warm weather and the birds chirping!  The binding is a batik polka dot that I picked up at JoAnn's.  I really like it and you might be seeing it again soon in another project!

They look great! Potholders are a good thing to practice on. That's one of the reasons I picked potholders! Try something new on each pair :)
