Crochet Hat Potholder:
Super cute and easy to make. These do up quickly and would make a very nice gift for Christmas when added with tea towels. You could also stuff the hat with potpourri and make as a hanging sachet for your linen cupboard.

I've also decided to start making printable pages of my blog posts from the lessons, tips and recipes! Save these and print them out, then add to your home keepers binder. Click on the image and it will go to the original size. Right click, save, and print off when you need it.
