Crochet Potholders again!

Sorry about the cat tail, could NOT tget mayself take it out of the picture!
Another set of potholders are done, a christmas present for my sister-in-law Mrs A. They are made by tunisian crochet with scalloped chrochet edged and two layers. The pattern is a variation from the book "Hekling og hakking til kjøkkenet" by Tove Fevang.
 I used SMC Cotton Time yarn. I love this yarn, it does not split when crocheting. The importer to Norway is bankrupt, so hopefully somebody else will start importing the yarn. Or I have to start looking for a good cotton alternative.

A bag for Laura

Pattern: #1172 "Scrap Bag Cuties" from Whistlepig Creek Productions
Straps from Cindy's Button Company (32")
Fabric and pattern was my sister-in law Laura's selection. I was not too exited in the beginning, but I like the final result, it is very much her style! Like a cup-cake with frosting. Pattern and fabric was purchased from Sew & Sew Quilts and Fabrics in Stanley, Wisconsin. Here is one of the front porch decorations, cute!
While shooting pictures of this bag, my cat Harry showed up and wanted attention.
