Monday making - using it ALL UP

This week I worked on using up some things in the sewing room.

I DO have quilting cotton.
I also have old denim pants and a bag of selvages I began saving a while back.

The two went hand in hand for a little POTHOLDER sewing!

Two squares of denim and some of those selvages to perk them up.
It was fun and something that I had to try.

If I make enough I’ll have one for everyone at Christmas!

I also added another block to my Christmas quilt along.

What are YOU making this week?


  1. feels so frugal to use up stuff that might have been headed for the trash....lovely postholders...i make them myself!

  2. From what I know of you, I am sure you will have plenty of cute potholders for everyone :-)

  3. I love the potholders and I love the idea of using old denim in quilts!

  4. What a great use for some denim. At first glance I thought you'd used the selvedges to make pockets to hold the potholder on your hand. No matter they look great and yea! for using what's on hand.

  5. Your pot holders are so pretty. I never safe my selvages . . . then I see ideas like this and rethink.

  6. I'm glad I still had "leftovers" from the quilt I made my sis years ago. Her son in law's dog chewed holes in it, and I was able to almost invisibly repair it with same or similar fabrics. Good thing I saved them.

  7. The denim potholders are so cute, but more importantly, so practical!

  8. Well these are absolutely darling and will make great Christmas presents. Happy quilting.

  9. I really appreciate your professional approach.These are pieces of very useful information that will be of great use for me in future.
