This is a swap for members who are just beginning to learn certain skills. Specific tutorials are provided so that everyone is making basically the same simple item. I don't want new sewers to become discouraged when they send something very basic and then receive something very different and/or, shall we say, "much more advanced" in return. So for these beginner swaps I would ask that everyone follow the tutorials provided. All NFS members are welcome to join, but please keep in mind that this may be your partner's first effort - so please be kind when rating and providing feedback. Thx. (";)

Let's make our partner a dishtowel potholder using THIS TUTE.

Please make sure your dishtowel is 100% cotton and washed/dried/ironed before you start putting it together.

Since we will be limited to the dishtowels we can find, this will be sender's choice.

No embellishments are required.

Open to all NFS members in good standing. Please see my screening criteria here for more info.

NOTE: I need at least 5 participants (not including myself) for the swap to go forward.

**Please pm me if you have any questions as I do not check my open swaps daily. Thx. **

Just made mine and it came out smaller than I expected. Will definitely be sending two!

Not all dishtowels are the same size unfortunately, but a smaller one would still be handy for holding a warm pot handle while stirring, or for taking a hot dish out of the microwave.

This swap did not specify a starting or finished size, so it is up to you if you wish to send 2. (";)
