THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED & A WINNER
HAS BEEN CHOSEN
My lovely assistant
Plus I love hot chocolate, a crackling fire, and Christmas movies more than is healthy. Our annual movie lineup begins on my birthday every year in mid-November and includes: Elf, A Christmas Story, Miracle on 34th Street (old and new...but old is my favorite...gotta love Maureen O'Hara), cartoon Grinch, Jim Carrey Grinch, It's a Wonderful Life, Family Man, Home Alone, Muppet Christmas Carol, Love Actually, The Holiday, Polar Express, White Christmas and The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe.
But you probably don't care much about that ;) On to the giveaway! Since I'm on a serious holiday baking/potholder kick right now, the first item is a double oven mitt made by me :) I could seriously kiss the person that invented these things. It's so much easier than trying to round up two potholders while the oven timer is frantically beeping at you! Plus it's an awesome lap guard when you're transporting a hot dish in the car.
I made it using my Orla Kiely potholder from Target as a model. It's lined with Insul-Brite and the fabrics are 2-D Yuletide, Kei Honeycomb Dots in Red, and Kona in Rich Red. I used 1/2" bias tape from Joann's for both the binding and hanging loop thingy.
I'd also like to add that I realize not everyone out there is as obsessed with domesticity as I am. So if you find yourself the winner and cooking/baking isn't your bag, you have my blessing to pass this item along as an early Christmas gift to a cook in your life. Seriously! It's cool. :)
P.S. I'm going to post a pdf template for you guys
And I'm super excited about this giveaway's fabric bundle! I think it would be perfect for FITF's tree skirt (I plan on making one for myself using most of these prints and some solid Kona...still debating on whether or not I wanna go with white or jazz things up with some red or green). Included in the bundle are: 1/2 yard each of Kona in Rich Red, Grass Green, and Jungle (not pictured...it's on its way as we speak)...and a Fat Quarter each of Reindeer in Snow, Hexagon Dots in Holiday, Groove Funky Star Bursts in Lime, Reindeer in Holiday, Square Dots in Holiday, Lecien Sugar Multicolored Dots, and Funky Rectangles in Holiday.
