This design is for a finger potholder but the face portion and ears of this design would make a cute pocket on a child's piece of clothing. The first color stop in this design is a basting stitch to hold down the fabric that is floated on top of the stabilizer. There is no need to hoop the fabric, just the stabilizer. The potholder instructions are included with the design download. These instructions apply to all of the animal designs. The finished potholder is about 6.5 inches by 4.5 inches.
