Funky Scrap Bag potholders, front
Welcome to my new sewing blog, which chronicles my adventures as a self-taught, semi-anarchistic urban seamstress, hence the name "Tough Buttons." Lately, I've been whipping out these easy potholders by the dozen. The pattern is in Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects.They're a great way to use up fabric scraps, and they make great gifts. Who doesn't need another potholder?

For these potholders, I used various remnants of kaleidoscopic Kaffe Fassett scraps that were burrowing in the bottom of my sewing bag. I was pleased with the mismatched, ragamuffin results.
