Sunday Selvage

I found this really nifty tutorial for potholders over on ..and Sew On's blog. I thought they'd be great using selvages, so I made one yesterday afternoon. I added a little loop at the top, because I hang my potholders near the stove.These potholders are nifty in that you stick your hand in them like a mitt...

Aren't they great?
It wasn't until afterward that I realized the business side of these was covered in pretty selvages. You know what happens to potholders... they get dirty and yukky looking. But then I thought, oh well, I can just make more!

I checked out the tutorial and will be making some of these. I bought some that were like this but heart shaped with bias tape around them. This way looks stronger and easier. I'm not a fan of adding bias tape.

Oh, I'm planning to do some pot holders really soon. I've had that Insul-Bright out on my sewing table for weeks.
