How about a chicken potholder/hotpad...

I saw the link to this tutorial on Sew Inspired on Pinterest.   I just had to try one...and may make more later. I showed it to my sister-in-law/best friend and she made one before I even started.  And her daughter suggested the chicken have an eye...so thank you Holly for that idea.  Hopefully tonight I will set and do the hand stitching on the binding.

It has rained a lot here today and really cooled down some.  But get this, when the cats first went out this morn, two of them went out on the sidewalk and sat a few minutes in the rain.  The heat must have been really getting to them because I have never noticed them doing that before.

CUTE! Isn't it fun making something small and kinda silly? Makes for a nice break from the big quilt decisions. Holly is right, the button eye makes a nice touch.

Oh I love this hot pad, Rose.
Funny about the cats....I took 2 of my cats to the vet for annual checkup yesterday. What a wild ride with those two!!!

what a cute hotpad. So glad it rained and it's a little cooler.

very strange for cats to sit in the rain... and i agree, the eye should be there. you will never have to buy a pot holder and that is a good thing.

Cats sitting in the rain? My dog won't even do that, so hard to imagine. Love your potholder.

I love the pot holder/hot pad. Chickens are fun and I am glad you added the eye.
Cats are funny and I am sure with their fur coats they welcomed the coolness.
