Yeah, more pot holders.  I know, "Yawn".  But dang it, I can't help it!  Plus I'm getting ready for my first craft fair.  Anyway, I had such fun naming these fire fightin' fellas (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=266251.msg2992640#msg2992640) and these lovely ladies (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271018.msg3059401#msg3059401) that I decided to name these guys, too.

Here's Stanley:

He's named for Stanley Tools

This is Woody:

Guess what he's named for.  Not that!  Shocked It's the lumber he's carrying. 

Meet Walt:

Named for DeWalt power tools.

Here we have Linc:

Named for that chain he's holdin'.

And finally, Helmut:

He was the most difficult to name as he's not carrying anything and he's so serious looking.  Then POW! it came to me.  I think it's the funniest and the most lame at the same time.

Thanks for looking!

Golly, thanks!  I'm obsessed with pot holders and I don't even cook!

These are hilarious I love them!

Thank you!  They make me giggle and smile the whole time I'm making them.  I love that in a craft.

Thank you!  I think so, too.

My favorite is Stanley. I wish I could find the cross-dresser pin-up fabric!  You hear that Alexander Henry?  There's a market for cross-dresser pin-ups!

Ha!  When I found this the first time I KNEW I had to make something for The ManFlesh with it (as per a conversation we'd recently had) and was racking my brain when I had the epiphany, "Boxer shorts!"  So, I made these: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195457.msg2063349#msg2063349 (the second picture).

You think if I made a skirt, people would give me dollar bills when I wore it?  Hmmmmmmm.  I bought my last yardage from this ebay seller http://myworld.ebay.com/emeraldcityfabricandcraft/ .  Everytime I get some at the local fabric stores or try to get some I'm told how fast they sell out, so I'm not sure why they don't order more at one time.

Haha!  I agree about Helmut - he seems like he thinks he's too deep and serious to work or be nice.  I'm partial to Stanley, myself.  Kiss

Oh, I love those! I plan on using some of that fabric to make soem aprons for christmas gifts.

I'm sure your aprons will be a big hit!  I took these (+ some more) to my first craft faire yesterday and sold out!  Prepare to get requests after the recipients show off their new aprons.  Cheesy
