Q&A with itzdiane

barmstan845768 asked:
Haven't done much machine embroidery . Will this be a project I will be able to do?
itzdiane answered:
Yes, you can do it! Cut your potholder square a little bigger than you want it, then you'll be able to trim if you need to. 2 squares of fabric, 1 square of special batting (with the silver stuff in it) for hotpads/oven mitts, sew right sides together, turn, sew around outer edge and add a loop if you want.

These are so lovely!
itzdiane answered:
Thank you, I love those lacy leave designs!
Moopsee asked:
To be useful, I'm guessing you did this with cotton thread or else you risk the design melting.... They are stunning!
itzdiane answered:
No, I didn't even think of that! I made them for my sister and she thought they were too pretty to use. Guess I should ask her if she has and if the thread is still intact! Aaah
Mindy English Rooney asked:
I love how those turned out! Can you point me in the direction of where to find the design for the leaves?
itzdiane answered:
Thank you! I bought them from emblibrary.com. They are called Light and Lovely Leaves.
stumble.b4831425 asked:
How long did it take you to do one holder?
itzdiane answered:
It's been quite a while since I've made them so I don't remember how long it took. Seems like it was pretty quick though since I just sewed the squares RST, turned, and top-stitched.
