If you follow me, you know I just moved into a new house. My husband designed the entire house and I was left with only my sewing/guest room to decorate. I needed to add my handmade touch to something, so when I showed him Hesketh House he loved it (he's a a fan of Liberty too) and caved for me to make something. Our kitchen back splash has a herringbone design, so I instantly knew this was going to be my design for pretty potholders. The design is hand pieced (dont' ask how long that took but it was worth it!). I used a pattern I found online for tile tradesman as my template and went from there. I also used Riley Blake Linen in natural. I thought it would pair so well with Hesketh House!

Here is what I made:

I also made a coordinating tea towel as well:

Here's the back of the pot holders . I used leather trim for the loops.
