Felted Pot holders!

During my weekend at the ranch... I worked on handcrafting these felted pot holders! I found these cheap and fun wool sweaters at Goodwill... came home, washed them on hot water and dried them in a hot, hot dryer...which felted them. -And then, cut out wavy patterns into the shape of a flower! I layered two pieces together, for thickness and used the blanket stitch to sew them up! I've used the pink one already...and it worked beautifully! I plan to make stacks of these to keep on hand for gift giving-- wouldn't they be cute tucked in a basket with homemade raspberry jam and baked goods?
Total time to make? Under an hour! Can't beat that!
Here's more snaps of them!
