Giveaway day!


Hi friends! Thanks so much to the folks at Sew, Mama, Sew for hosting Giveaway day for us, twice each year! This time I decided to make some selvage potholders for my giveaway--you choose the colors you want.

I made this set for our guild swap last fall, and then I couldn't attend, so I ended up keeping them for myself:

selvage potholders

They have one layer of insulated potholder batting and one layer of warm and white batting. To enter, leave a comment that includes what colors you would choose. (Rainbow is an option.) One comment per person, please, and I have comment moderation enabled so don't worry if your comment doesn't show up immediately.

*The giveaway will be open until Friday, May 16, at 5 p.m. pacific time.
*I'll email the winner when I close the comments.
*I'll ship the potholders next week.
*Giveaway is open to all (including international).


Don't forget to visit Sew, Mama, Sew and check out all the amazing giveaways this week!

edit: the giveaway is now closed and the winner was #90, Lee. Thanks for entering!
