Yeah, I know, potholders ... weeeeeee.
Quite a while ago I noticed a project to make potholders out of old blue jeans, and I rightly assumed that any denim-like heavy cotton fabric would probably work as well.
Shortly thereafter, my husband was about to toss out his old camo pants. *click*
And now we have potholders that we can never seem to find...
These have held up remarkably well, considering they were my first crack at potholder-making. Over the last eight years, they've picked up some stains and a minor burn mark or two, but the camo seems to cover that pretty well.
My cousin is currently serving as a U.S. army cook. I should really make a pair of these for him, don't you think?
