Handmade

Did you know I love to sew? I'm no seamstress but holy crap do I have fun doing it!

Check out these potholders I made out of tea towels my grandmother picked up in Portugal and Brazil.  I'm trying to get rid of as much stuff as possible, and also save money, so I made these using only things I had on hand. I didn't have any heat-resistant batting around, so I used too-old-towels as the filling.  I'm totally satisfied with the results.

It's surreal to think that I'll have a chance to go to Portugal pretty soon too :)
