Pepper Potholder (aka coaster) from Zakka Style Book

 I've particpated in enough coaster swaps that I really didn't need any more coasters, so I decided to also make a potholder (hotpad).  I made my pepper but instead of using cotton for the backing, I used lightweight fusable interfacing.  The linen that I used as the background is my absolute favorite, and I maybe have enough for one more potholder.  I used twill tape for the stem and  upholstery thread for the handstitching.  The brown binding was also a scrap I had on hand.  I used one layer of warm and natural batting and one layer of thermobright in the potholder.  The backing is a home dec scrap with browna and green stripes.
