These pretty potholders went to their new home today. I made them for my SIL, Karen, who came for a visit today with my favorite brother. Okay, so he's my only brother, but I'm sure he'd be my favorite if I had a choice!! We live about three hours away from my family, so we don't get together enough. It's always great to see them! Even the dog gets excited when they come!
I designed these on quilted muslin, so I did't do a lot of quilting. I simply quilted with brown under the cup and saucer to represent a table. I hand embroidered "coffee" and "decaf" on the coffee bags. I also embroidered the steam.
Besides the corduroy I used for the cups, the other fabrics are all from Debbie Mumm. I am also working on a simple table runner to match, but it isn't quite complete yet.
