I made these potholders as a custom order for none other than my ever supportive mom! This is, by the way, what happens when I follow my own direcions! (see my last post). I went ahead and used double-folded biase tape on these instead of making my own. One thing I did not inherit from my mom is a particular enjoymen of ironing. She loves to iron, but I can’t say the same for myself! As a side note, I also have to say that she is an incredibly talented seamstress, and I would like to think that I have inherited some of that :o) So, I bought the pre-ironed stuff, and I have to say that I’m hooked. It was so easy to use, and I really like the crispness of the bias tape. I also enjoyed sewing on the loops to each one. That was the final, and very satisfying step.
