Recycled sweater pot holder

I whipped these up yesterday after burning my hands yet again with my 5 year old cotton pot holders. They are super easy and pretty sophisticated. I was going to appliqué some cute fabric on them, but ran out of time. You may have seen me stitching them together at the playground…

Don’t think any heat will make it through 2 layers of felted wool.

Felted sweaters – old favorite or thrift store
Wool yarn
Tapestry needle

Cut 2 - 8” squares or circles of felted wool.
Place wrong sides together and blanket stitch together.
Crotchet stitched the loop and secured by wrapping yarn through.
