For the embroidery, I used my mother's 2-ply DMC cotton that was in her embroidery yarn box. This cloth turned out just too pretty to be a lowly potholder for wear and tear in the kitchen... it looks really too precious! So in honor of the International Women's Day - here we go from rags to riches!
The idea is from Michelle Gibbs, she saw the hotpad frequently on the Internet and finally sat down and wrote out the pattern, sharing it with Ravelry friends. It is soon available also in German.
How small, practical and ordinary things can suddenly take on their own beauty!
