My husband saw this project and instantly dubbed it a Paisley Packman.  Whatever!! Smiley  I am on a quest to make most of my Christmas presents, here is my latest attempt.  I purchased a Just a Pinch Potholder pattern from Keyka Lou.  It's a very fast and easy thing to whip up and doesn't take much fabric.  I think I whipped through it a little too fast though and it came out a little crooked.  I may keep these for myself and take my time on a couple more for presents!  I highly recommend this pattern and project!!

Really cute! I am also making all my holiday gifts this year and these look like they could be on the list!

What are they lined with to make them heat resistant?

Great idea - I've been thinking of making myself some of these, but haven't got a pair to use as a pattern - I'll go looking ;0)

You use this stuff called Insul-brite it's heat resistant batting.  At my fabric store they keep it at the fabric cutting counter.  I also really want to try this tutorial http://theboytrifecta.blogspot.com/2010/10/double-potholder-tutorial.html for a little something different!

This so cute.  What size is the potholder?  I like the pricing of the patterns.

Mine is about 8"x5.5", but I tend to sew larger seam allowances than called for Smiley
