More Pot Holders!

A few weekends ago, my mom and I were in Whipstitch and picked out some great fabrics from their remnant bin! There was just enough to make these sweet pot holders.

I absolutely love the look of a coordinating/contrasting binding, but the only way I knew to do it was to handstitch the back side. I hate doing it! It hurts my hands and takes forever and makes me go batty, and you know I LOVE long projects. NOT. So, I tweeted my frustration, just because that's what I do when I get frustrated. Someone out there cares. Trust me. My twitter friend Belinda, also known as @BGMom1, cared enough to help me out BIGTIME! She walked me right through machine stitching the binding, which was fantastic. I couldn't be happier with the results!

What do you think?
