I don't think I posted this here, just on the Trash to Treasure board.

I meant to put 'Rack' in the subject line, and forgot. Sorry, I'm only about half here today.(-:

RE: Strawberry Potholder

Frances~ I think I may have seen this on T2T but I like seeing it again and I know other people will like it too. Great job. Did you follow a pattern or freehand it? I like your recipe wallpaper too. :) ~Anj

RE: Strawberry Potholder

Wow! Frances, those strawberries look good enough to eat! Love the idea of the bent fork hooks too. Do you use a spray sealer, or the brush on sealer? Nice shiny finish on it. Hey, love the old looking recipe paper too--is that on a wall or table? I don't always make it over to T2T, so please feel free to post both places. Thanks, Luvs

RE: Strawberry Potholder

Luvs, I used a brush-on topcoat, made by Krylon. That is my kitchen wall, and I tore up cookbooks, 'glued' it on with wallpaper paste, then tea stained it.
Anjabee, I just follwed a picture. I don't do well trying to follow a pattern, since I never took lessons, the terms confuse me, so I just try to duplicate a picture as closely as I can. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm having fun doing it.

RE: Strawberry Potholder

You are very creative Frances. Now you can cook dinner without even having to open your cookbook! LOL That is really cool. I've used the Krylon spray on products allot, but didn't even know they had a brush on finish. Thanks. Luvs

RE: Strawberry Potholder

That is gorgeous! Such a good idea. You are a very talented lady :-)
