Potholder Notes

12:21 PM Posted In Edit This 15 Comments »


A note pad holder made from a potholder folded in half. I sewed a large button near the middle of one edge, so that when the potholder is folded, the loop on the opposite acts as a closure when wrapped around the button. The outside image is by Yvonne Albritton (click the button on the side of my blog to go to her site) and is colored with Close To My Heart markers and Prismacolor pencils. The pencils were then blended with Gamsol. Ribbon is from Yvonne Albritton Designs, rolling pin button is from www.shellysbuttonsandmore.com. I tied a piece of black hemp thru the button holes to finish it. The inside note pad is a mini composition note pad (from Dollar Tree) and is covered with background paper from Yvonne Albritton Designs. Ink pen is from Dollar Tree; I cut a small bit of coordinating background paper and put it inside the barrel of the pen. So that the notepad holder could be used many times after the paper is gone, I glued a piece of black cardstock to the potholder and glued it on three sides, leaving one side open. The composition pad's back cover just slides in an out so when it's empty, another pad can replace it. NOTE: Everything in this project (ribbon, button, paper) was glued with Fabric Glue. It works like a charm on all surfaces. It can be found at Michaels, JoAnn's, and WalMart.
