just finished this yesterday. i've been needing new pot holders for awhile cause mine are really worn out. and i couldn't really find any i liked, so i decided to make one. i took apart one of my old ones and used the heat resistant fabric inside for the new one. i just used fabric i already had so i didn't have to buy anything. its all hand sewn, and the i just used back stitch and satin stitch for the eyes. i got the pattern on flickr. its an illustration by jacque davis.
thanks for looking.
