funky scrap bag potholders

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.

These look awesome! I wish I could learn to sew too! Did you use a machine for these btw?

Yep! I used a machine. Haven't been sewing lately, though, bc I'm finishing up my second cookbook. Can't wait to get back to it.
