Continued Pot Holder Magic

Well, not really magic - just plain fun! Made a small activity book to keep little hands occupied!

I used "single" potholders throughout the little book. On each pot holder, I sewed either a pocket, separated for books and pencils, and sewed small pouches to hold crayons or colored pencils, or even a small game!
For a little girl, add all the frilly laces and designs you wish. Add two large grommets to the edge of each potholder. Thread ribbon or braid through all and tie. Your little book is ready to be used.
I used heavy vinyl for the pockets, however a heavy duty ziplock baggie will also work! Get creative!

Happy Stitchery!
