So I drafted up a giant hexagon by simply adding 1 inch to my ruler for the inside and 2 inches for the outside.
I cut myself some fabric for a large hexagon block, and cut a piece of Insul-Bright batting the size of the smaller piece to sandwich in there and I made myself a potholder.
Roseann had just gotten a big shipment of rick rack, and we discussed putting rick rack in the seam allowance.
I like the larger size, and I bet even jumbo rick rack would be awesome, if you made the outside hexagon more than just 1 inch bigger, maybe 1 1/2 inches?
I didn't have enough of the larger rick rack to go around mine.. but you get the idea. Pretty cute right? Of course we didn't just stop with that. We thought about adding other embellishments, like appliques and monograms with the Slice Fabrique and buttons made with the i-top and charms and ribbons. It was like a creative firestorm.
So I whipped out a plain pot holder. But what I really want to do is have you all to go over and bug Roseann to make a fancy one. She's the embellishment genius and she's got all the cool tools to do it. You can catch her on her blog, or on Facebook. Tell her I sent you!!!
