I have always thought of ‘pot holders’ as American as we have oven gloves in this country but I saw this fascinating pattern for a pot holder and I thought that it might just be handy.
My saucepans have metal curved handles and they are great saucepans but sometimes the handle does get too hot to hold with bare hands and I have to grab a dish cloth or tea towel to protect my fingers.
So I took some of the spare cotton I had bought to make the bath puffs and made one.
The thing that totally charmed me was what you did next which was to fold the sides over to get this. Sewing up was easy. Here is the other side. I wondered if it would be big enough but thought if it wasn’t maybe it could be used as a coaster. and I could make a bigger one
but it works fine!
