Those pesky little pot holders are just annoying when they come in a pack with an oven mitt and tea towel. I tend to buy two of those packs so that I can have two oven mitts to use. I'll admit that I've thrown out a few pot holders over the years and donated some to the local op shop.
Not any more. One day a few months ago I was looking at my collection of pot holders and thought there has to be a way to use them. Because I buy two oven mitt sets, I end up with two matching pot holders. So I got out my sewing machine thinking I could sew them together to form an oven mitt. Unfortunately they were too thick to fit under the machine foot ( I think that's what you call it ).
I was a little annoyed but not deterred. So I got out my collection of sewing needles. After a bit of trial and error I found a sharp yet thick needle to sew through all the layers.
I put the right sides out and sewed around the pot holders leaving enough room to slip my hand in.
Yay !! They worked. For about 10 minutes of my time I was able to make something useful for my kitchen.
Here's what they look like.
