    Smile just made great MEN'S CHRISTMAS GIFT

    couldn't think of a great man's gift, then it hit me!

    I took denim and 2 layers of insulabrite put that between 2 layers of denim,( right side down 2 insulabrite right side up). stitched 1/2" in and then an x cut into the 1/2" seam allowance. I also took the heavy side seam cut it 6" and put a loop in the corner. ran it thru the wash twice,
    all men need a pot holder that's masculine, this was it, I made them 10 x 10 a masculine size. And they're great for the bar b q too. also took 5" sqs, did the same one layer of cotton batt between, and made coasters. manly enough for a cowboy! I recycled jeans and got 2 gifts from an old pair of pants.

    no camera srry. but it has ragged edges about 3/8" it gives it a masculine look, and 10 x 10 makes it good for a mans hand. if it gets yucky, no biggie, use old jeans if you have them, nice and thick too

    also, no turning inside out and the older they get, the better they look
