I just realized that I never got around to posting these...  I just organized the Potholder Swap, and had a wonderful time creating a set of Steampunk Potholders for my partner, Wulf.  He mentioned that he usually uses mitt style potholders, because the average square and circle ones are too small for his hands.  So I made him two mitts, and one extra large square potholder.   He mentioned liking Steampunk and Victoriana in general, and I noticed on his profile that he also liked celtic things, so soon the Steampunk Celtic Pirate Potholders were born...

All together:

Large square, which features vintage map borders, around a celtic knot:

The reverse features appliqued clocks, and an antique looking fabric "letter":

The front of mitt #1:

The reverse of mitt #1:  (I quilted along the longitude and latitude lines of the map fabric!)

The front of mitt #2:

The reverse of mitt #2:  (Here I quilted around all the little scrolly bits...  I must have temporarily lost my mind.)

I also included a set of magnets as an extra.  They were made by filling bottlecaps with resin, and include lots of images from the Graphics Fairy.
