    I like these. I just made some bowl cozies that my sister asked me to make her for Christmas. I had never made them before and they turned out really nice. I think I'll have to try making these pot holders too. Thanks for sharing!

    They are inside in. It's a light color he used. Fooled me at first too.

    I want to give these a try. I have several people that I like to give a little something to for Christmas.

    I used the 8" squares and it was too big for me. I am going to try 7" squares next time.

    I made the 8" square, much too big for my hand but good for DH. Will try the 7" square.

    I love these. I made two for my son's grandparent's in-law ( Nana and Nandy). I used 7 1/2" fabric, and 7" squares of the insulbrite/ batting. I had Mike check them to see if they were alright for 'man hands'.

    Don't do what I did on the second set. I used the batting in the triangles, and forgot to put the insulbrite on the other side. Insert head slap here. At least it was easy to fix... after I picked it all out.
