Potholder for my Aunt

I admit I'm missing form her, but the work is going on behind the scenes. I have two more days to prepare for my collage works review. When everything is done I promise to share.
So I decided to sneak in and share one of this years finishes, that's a mug rug. For Christmas I wanted to do some handmade gifts for my aunt and cousin. Since my aunts gift was smaller I started with it. Here is what I did:

I got my idea for a design from here. But made the calculations myself. And this is how large it turned out to be.

Since I love mini things I really enjoyed working with such small size HSTs. But still... they're tiny:

My aunt loved it. And that's what made me happy.

With this project I also tried to press seams open. But somehow I didn't really enjoy it. I think I did something wrong and that's why it was a mess. Well, I'll take a look at the tutorials for pressing seams open, and maybe I'll try again.

I admit I had to do it for Christmas, but I couldn't make it in time. But I met my aunt after New Year and gifted this little one, She really loved it. She actually chose the design while looking into my design notebook, of course she had no idea I was going to make her something, so it was a surprise. I knew her favorite colors were light blue and yellow, so I went only with those two. It turned out great! My aunt is in love with it! And that's what makes me happy.

One gift made and one left. I planed to make two simple pillows for my cousin. But only the design and math is done. They are really simple, so I plan to whip them up in the next week. After my review is done. And that's on Monday, so I am of to work. See you then.

Best wishes,
