Another Project Completed

pot holder Mom 2 (1 of 1)

I finished another project last week.  This time a pot holder and oven mitt for my mom.  I followed this tutorial by Amy at Nana Company for the pot holder.  Have you looked at her blog?  She has so much lovely over there! And lots of easy to follow tutorials to fill your home with lovely too!

The oven mitt is a modification of the pattern that came with my apron pattern (McCall’s M5825).  The fabric is Calliope by Stitch Studios for Riley Blake.  I am so smitten with this fabric! While sewing the gingham edging, I remembered a gingham skirt I sewed waaaayyyy back when.  It was my first big sewing project as a young girl.  Mom helped me through it.  I was making a tiered maxi skirt in sort of an aqua gingham.  If I remember right, I got the pattern instructions out of a teen magazine.  It was just three rectangles sewn together, gathered and with an elastic waistband added.  A good first project!

Do you remember your first sewing project?  Please share!
