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.
