Awhile back I learned that a bachelor friend of mine had been using a Vise Grip tool as an "oven mitt" since his ex-wife took all of the hot pads with her.  I did this by scanning a Vise Grip, fiddling with the image, then printing it on iron-on paper.  I ironed it on fabric from my stash, then sewed it to heat-resistant, quilted fabric.  It'll certainly work for pulling Marie Callender's frozen meals out of the oven safely.

I didn't even realize that wasn't an actually tool!
I was sitting here trying to figure out what the thread was about

I thought the same thing, I was thinking, why are there pliers laying on that fabric.  I'm glad I was curious enough to look, this is a great idea!!!

Wow!  Ya' post your project, take a shower and then BAM! you've got several VERY NICE responses.  THANKS!

meriweather: It does work!  But still.   Wink

One of your avatars actually looks a bit like his ex!  You're not, though.  Whew.  Anyway, I think she deserved to take the kitchen stuff as she was the only one who ever used it, but leave a man a hot pad for cryin out loud!

I first clicked on the image because I thought, what could somebody have wanted to stick pliers into plaster for?
Then I stared a the picture thinking, did she attach the pliers to a piece of cloth so the pliers wouldn't get hot when he used them to take things out of the oven?
Ahh, that teaches me to not just look at pictures and to read the entire explanation.
This was a great idea and well executed.  Smiley
