I was determined to do the bindings on the potholders by machine. I used a LOT of pins to hold the turned binding in place, then I stitched it down from the front.The first one was rough.... ran out of bobbin thread, then broke a needle, then discovered I did not catch the back binding in the seam. But by the third and fourth potholder, I had the method mastered and now the binding is finished!
I think they turned out really cute. The polka dot binding makes them pop!
And I did a few more red and white blocks! Each bow tie is 8" square.
The bear paws are each 5.75". I make the bow tie block and with the leftover triangles I make the bear paws.
I love getting two blocks for the price on one! I now have 35 of each block, and every red fabric is different. I'll keep going until I run out of reds!
