FAL Finish 2- Paper Pieced Potholder

As I said last time, I have another finish for the FAL and once again it's something started recently, this time it's a bit of paper piecing for my kitchen.  This months fab pattern from Kristy at Quiet Play and the Sew Kitschy Sew Along was a teapot, and as I have a new kettle I figured it deserved a little pretty to sit on.  
Sew Kitschy
As you probably realise by now, I'm rather partial to spots and polka dots, so I decided to include a few in the block, and here is what I came up with. 
I love a bit of hand binding, all done and ready for it's kitchen debut. Pattern by @quietplay
I re-did the binding as the black bike path print I used originally (also on the back) just didn't work for me for the binding.

I will be back soon with another finish, unfortunately my thumb had a disagreement with a knike (and the thumb lost), so hand sewing down the binding is going to be a little difficult for the next few days :o(

  1. Oh bugger on the thumb slicing, but nice finish. I presume you didn't get any blood on it!

  2. Some people just can't be trusted!!!

  3. Nice on the teapot stand, bugger on the thumb!

  4. hope the thumb soon feels better as this beauty needs to be finished xx

  5. I didn't know you liked polka dots, never seen you buy any... It looks lovely, and I'm sure it will set off your kettle beautifully. Damn knike! Knikes are so dangerous

  6. Oh ouch! Hope that gets better soon- Alex still has holey hands after a glass bottle exploded in the fridge about a fortnight ago... I can't stop laughing at Wendy though sorry :/

  7. ouch! I have a teapot that looks just like that along with two polka dot mugs - they are a favourite of mine too!

  8. This is so cute! How is your thumb now?

  9. Totally cute ! I love your dots, too!


I love hearing your comments, so go ahead, say something, it really makes my day.......
