Kitchen potholder set (red)
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY MARIE-ANNE RETHORET-MELIN
Here a new creative idea brought to you by designer Marie-Anne Réthoret-Mélin. Why not stitch your very own set of potholders?
The pattern includes two large square motifs, that can easily be mounted as potholders once you have cross stitched them. All you need to do is add some padding, a pretty matching piece of fabric for the back, and finish with a piece of bias or rickrack for hanging. The set also includes a little mini motif that is very versatile and can be used for fridge magnets, napkin rings, or why not combine four of them to make an extra potholder?
The pattern is designed in red, using one DMC Color Variations floss and one darker matching red. You could easily use other floss colors and match your own kitchen color scheme.
