    Those will make lovely gifts. Great job and you’ve made an abundance of them.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Good Morning, Everybody! Just wanted to add this link i found which closely resembles the method for making most of the potholders... i wanted to show you how really quick and easy it is!

    Mine are made basically the same way shown - except that what becomes the backside of my potholder is made of jeans and that i add one more layer of W&N.

    The video shows the four patch square design, but its easy to make the four patch triangle version by just folding your fabric squares for the top on the diagonal and assembling them in the same manner shown.

    So... dont be real impressed by how many i actually got done because they really are quick and easy to make!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I, too, have a collection of stained, burned potholders, but that's why we have them! Couldn't live without them.

    They are so cute. I do have a question, do the buttons ever melt, or do you get special onrs?

    Shasta5718... good question - i have never had a button melt, but its worth mentioning that the backside of the potholder should be the side touching the actual hot item. The backside has the jeans and special heat resistant batting.
