A while back, I started my very tiny hexagons ...
I thought they might be cute made into tiny Christmas ornaments, but I wasn't sure if that's what these were for. Then, my husband pointed out how nice it would be to put these onto something that we'd be able to see more often than just a few weeks a year. Good point.
So, I kept thinking. And occasionally making another little batch of hexagons.
I tried a mini-wallhanging idea, but I wasn't that impressed with it.
The other day, it hit me: I had some plain, storebought pot holders that I could really use in my kitchen, especially if they got some cute quilt-y embellishments on them.
And so, my kitchen is now glad to have quilt-y embellished pot holders!
The beige pot holders are the perfect color to be practical in the kitchen ... and the tiny embellishments are just enough color, but not so much quilt that I'll be afraid to use the pot holders.
I don't know if I'll make pot holders with all my mini-hexagons, but this is a great start!
And, the great thing about these pot holders is ... They make me smile! (Not just any pot holder can do that!)
Now, I'm thinking about all that extra denim I've got, and those crocheted potholder-backs that have been sitting around for ages ... You know, plain denim with tiny hexagons would be great sewn to those potholder backs! So would khaki denim!
