For this Christmas, I decided to make potholders for many of the women in my family.  I ended up making five sets of three each, plus an additional set of two, for a grand total of 17 potholders...yup.  The main sets are made up of one bird potholder (you put you hands in the wings, and it opens up at the bottom so you can grab stuff, as demonstrated in the fuzzy photo--sorry for the blurriness!) and two coordinating flat circle potholders.  The additional set of two is for my sister in law, who is in the army--I found this funny army cotton and couldn't resist.  Wink  I made all the patterns myself, used all cotton (to prevent flammability) and the insides have one layer of heat-resistant potholder fabric and one layer of all cotton batting.  

Enjoy!

Those sure are different! I think the military ones are cool too! Nice sewing job on the piping, too. They look like they'll be fun to use!

These are amazing! And so much better than store bought ones- the most creative ones I've seen have been heart shaped or something similar. Hitting this rocks!

must have cost a pretty penny,but well worth it.

These are so cute - i would love to have these in my kitchen instead of boring square potholders Cheesy Making 17 of them must have been hard work!
