~The pretty Farm Girl potholder... and the pigs!

This is probably my favorite potholder I own. I have seen lots of farm-girl things over the years. But the design of this pattern is precious. It looks like it started off as a quilt block. But never made it to the quilt. It is a simple potholder. And in lovely condition. I love that she has on her bonnet and her long legged petticoat.

Such sweet pigs! Made into potholders from old vintage quilts. Which were made into the shape of pigs! I love to see cutter quilts made into new handy items.
 
If you look closely you see that they have a small triangle ears too!

I wish I have bought a couple more of them for the kitchen...

Be sure to check out all the pinkness at ~Pink Saturdays!

Did someone say Pigs? The potholders are really cute, I agree, it's great to see old quilts used like this-enjoy:@)

Happy Easter Pink Farm Girl from Texas -- love the cats! in the kitchen! I often see these kind of embroidered girls when shopping at flea markets on table runners and stuff. Never thought about doing other stuff with them. Blessings Terri http://morningdewdrops.com
