Pot Mitts! {New Retro Revival Product}

For my show this weekend (The Great American Pie Festival), I designed pot holder/oven mitts.  Flat and round, they work as pot holders:



And with a pocket they also work as oven mitts:



I've sewn 50 sets that match or coordinate with my Retro Revival aprons.  In fact, I made them from apron fabric scraps and bias tape pieces.

They remind me of a towering stack of pancakes!



Thinking I may display them in a stock pot...



...Or on a dessert pedestal (you know how I love jadite!):



Though I forgot to snap a picture, I also sewed a loop on the backsides for hanging.  Fingers crossed they sell well!

And speaking of Jadite...remember to share a comment on this post so you'll be entered to win this month's blog giveaway:


I'll draw the winner on the 30th ~ good luck!

Cindy these are darling and round to boot...I envy your skills. I hate bias tape as it tends to twist on me no matter how I baby it. Best to you. I know these will sell like hot cakes...ha! Smiles...Renee

Your pot holders are so cute and clever. Bright idea to use the scraps of binding and apron fabric. They will sell----no worry. People like to buy a little something, even if they can't buy an apron, they will look for something small that they can purchase. Let us know how it goes.

Cindy, they are adorable. I think they will fly out of the place as fast as pancakes. I know that I would love to purchase a cherry set if you have any left after the show. The display pieces are so fun! I love the jadite cake stand. I do not have any jadite, but I sure do love it. I think I need a piece or two, or three, or four. ha-ha!
Hugs,
Jann
Love the give away also.
