Homestead Life, by Tara Reed, is here, and we couldn’t be more excited! This collection gives us all the good feels with its fresh, cheerful, farmhouse aesthetic.
We are loving the chunky gingham, the tonal wheat design, delightful florals, and the adorable main with its sweet little cows.
And the color palette is a dreamy mix of traditional and modern. LOVE it! I knew I had to make something for the kitchen with these fabrics, so I landed on this fun Patchwork Potholder FREE TUTORIAL by Sew Can She. Perfect!
With a 5″ stacker of Homestead Life in hand, I was able to whip these up in a single morning.
I was keeping my cuts random, not trying to fussy cut, but I did luck out when this cute little cow appeared in my patchwork!
I used the Yellow Gingham for the back of the potholders, and the Charcoal Main for the binding and inside back. I love the little tabs, which can be added either to the back or front of the potholder.
To use, simply slide your thumb into one back section, and the rest of your fingers into the other section. This gives a nice grip.
I quilted the top in a quick and easy criss-cross pattern. Aren’t they lovely?! I can’t wait to put these to use, and you can bet they will not be hiding in my linen drawer!
