A Melody Miller Staff Challenge

Ok, so a new range of fabric came into work a week or so back, "Ruby Star Rising," by Melody Miller.
Gail thought this would be a great opportunity to have a staff challenge. Our aim was to create a simple item using one fat quarter from the range.

I was the last to hear of this challenge, so sadly the gorgeous typewriter fabric had already been chosen. Even the funky green old clocks had been taken. So I spent some time trying to decide which fabric to choose, and what to actually make with it.

Eventually I decided upon this one, and pot holders instantly came to mind. I had seen a photo a while back of similar pot holders with a slit in the back for your hands. So, this was my result. SUPER quick and easy to make. I took them to work forgetting to take a photo, so I've snatched the one from Gails blog. I'll have to remember to take a shot of the back though, next time I'm in.

*cough* ignore the slightly wonky look on the right one. It's a humility pot holder, ok? *cough*

Fancy playing with some Melody Miller yourself? Gail is having a giveaway on her blog - so check it out!

Those bits of the fabric make great pot holders - I love the typewriter fabric too.
