Projects–Potholders I Love.

Since I just wrote a post on aprons, I thought I would look around for some fun pot holders.  I scrolled through more owl pot holders than I ever imagined.  The only one I really loved is by April Cornell.  Enjoy some of the variety below.  Maybe it will inspire you to make some as Christmas gifts.

Although this blog doesn’t have the best photography, I did like their ideas on what to do with left over jeans.  Making a carpet on which to wipe your feet sounded like a plan.  Here is the link.

A random post about pot holders.

Thanks for “potting” up with me.

    ‘Sob’ My pot holders have gone missing (they’re oven gloves right?) I used them to take a pot roast round to a family get together and now no one knows where they are. mind you they were covered in burnt stuff so i guess i wouldnt want them even if i found them

      Family gatherings are a great place to lose things. Or gain things. I have come home from a family gathering minus three gloves and one casserole dish, but have gained two coats, four cousins, and a new recipe. BTW mine are covered in burnt stuff too. I tried picking it off, and now my oven mitts have holes right where my fingers end.

    Well, I’m not sure if it is a good thing or not, but our April Cornell left the area years ago, so I thought it was gone forever. Just googled it and…….some styles I love..
    So, thanks for the post.
    Bless you lots, and sleep tight,

    Somewhere in the bottom of a box of fabric is some heat insulated batting that would work great for these potholders…much quicker project than the lonely single oven mitt i made once. My favorite oven mitts are a pair i bought from a wholesale groc store with a restaurant supply section. And they are covered with burnt griminess as well!

      I understand about the “burnt stuff!” I am thinking that I will do pot holders next year. maybe. I think I need to invest in a proffessional set ov oven mitts as mine now have holes burnt all the way through. I didn’t know about “heat insulated batting”. Is that found at regular fabric stores or did you specail order it?
