I decided to create these wonderful potholders for the handles of all of my cast iron skillets. The handles get awful hot to handle them by them selves. This was a fun project and a great way to recycle some of Ansir's old jeans.
I created two different styles. The first style was to take a piece of denim and sew a rectangle pocket. I also used the seams to adorn both sides of the potholder. I padded the inside with an old worn out potholder that I already had. I would also like to point out the little stick with marshmallows on it. I found some cute buttons to decorate the potholder.
For the next potholder design I used one of the back pockets from the jeans. I cut the pocket out and stuffed the pocket with some of the grey fabric that I used from the lining of the dog coat. This keeps the heat from surging thgouth the material and burning my hand.
Oops I guesstis one has already been used and gotten dirty. It has a slightly different shape to it than the others. I like having so many so that they can stay on the pans. then I don't alwasy have to be searching for the pan that is wearing it.
