Log Pot Holders




My Gramma still uses an old wood stove to cook on, so I have many memories of being at her house and cooking and baking with it, the ever-present "woodbox" that is a permanent fixture in her kitchen, and going out to the woodpile out by the barn to bring in wood. For her birthday she asked for potholders, so I made these. I found this great fabric last fall at a going-out-of-business fabric store... I wish I had bought more because I really like it! I've used it for a couple of purse linings.

The centre of the potholders is 4 or 5 layers of flannel. I stitched through all the layers on my machine for a slightly quilted look. I love the way they turned out.
