Down To Earth Dishtowel & Pot Holder Swap

This is what I made my swap partner Bettina, for the swap that was hosted over at Rhonda's Blog! If you have never visited her blog, you need to. It is great. I also included a recipe for her.

I learned to make the pot holders over at And Sew On! ! This is a great blog and she has a tutorial to make these great potholders.
These are some extra towels I made for me!

This is showing the back of one of the pot holders.

You just put your hand in this pocket and fold together for the pot holder.

I really enjoyed making these and hope to make some more for gifts. This is the second swap I have ever joined. The first swap was over at Connie's Blog! They both were a lot of fun. I hope my swap partner enjoys them. I made sure she had received them before I posted these pictures on my blog. Thanks for hosting this swap Rhonda!
