Crocheting potholders/hotpads

Crochet hotpads and potholders

A couple of these will be sacrificed to the
coffee gods...they will be used as 
cleanup cloths.

 But the large ruffled one will be spared.

I can't bring myself to use it.
I had such fun making it and love the 
colours in it.
It has a great vintage feel about it.
This picture shows the lacy base.

Here is a shot of the back
after the ruffles are added.

You can see how the rows are
made in zig zags.
I followed 
on the Royal Sisters' blog.

The patterns for the purple and brown
ones came from
This is really a wonderful book with
lots of great, quick patterns.
I adapted 
to make the pink hexagon.

Thanks Kellie...I was looking at my flickr pics and realized that I need to try out different colour combos...I'm really happy with the ruffle hotpad in those colours.

Thanks K......Yes I couldn't bring myself to having that hotpad covered in coffee stains.
