I made this potholder not too long ago, I'm not sure how I've managed to not make one of these before. This pattern can be found at Alice's blog. It uses the fun african flower pattern, which you can find in the comments here and Alice's mandala pattern, which I love!
I went with purples and cream for this potholder, I really love how it turned out. It's hanging up with the rest of my potholders in my kitchen. (someday I will get a photo of them all together!)
