Two other small projects are the hat and the pot holder. The pattern for the hat is Simplicity 5581.
The pot holder was my first try on patch-work. I chose this very small project just to see how to do this. This pattern was published in Burda magazine 08/1989 along with some other lovely bigger projects.
Besides trying quilting this project satisfied my inclination for recycling and nonwaste living. Maybe it is because I was raised by my grandmother who survived revolution and two wars and used to save everything, or just my inborn sense of responsibility but I hate wasting things. So I made this potholder from scraps of fabric that I used for my sewing projects.
