    Syn D - great idea!! I've never made these, but I would suggest that you use a potholder pattern - then you could make them any size you want!!

    It might not need to be said but make sure your material is heat resistant. I think cotton is the best product to use. Rayon, polyester and other synthetics won't take the heat.

    Great reminder ceashels.........would be nothing worse than some fabric stuck to/burned onto something!

    Thank You!! Husband has tried, but I wined up making him do the muttering..

    No big problem, I just don't know what to do with that pointy thing that has the string hanging off it..

    My hubby did it for me, he can sew a very little, but just made me some throw pillows..

    He grew up ~ if it tore ~ fix it, if it has a hole ~ patch it, if it broke ~ wheres the glue..

    I grew up ~ if it tore ~ throw it away and head to the mall, if it has a hole ~ head to the mall, if it broke ~ yay mall trip..
