“Thank you! Great pattern ! Just what I was looking for !”

These pot holders are so cute and easy to make. The chicken measures 8 ½” X 11 ½” from the bottom of the feet to the top of the comb. The owl measures 8 ½” X 10 ¾” from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet.

They can be used as pot pinchers by inserting your hands into the wings. They would be adorable set on the table as trivets as well. What a nice house warming gift, or anyone would love to have them as a gift for any occasion! Think of all the owl and chicken lovers you know!

They are made out of cotton fabric with a layer of batting in the wings and a double layer of batting in the bodies for extra insulation. They have cute button eyes, ¼” ribbon for the chicken’s comb and wattle, and a spaghetti strap for the owl’s hanger.

This 31-page PDF e-book includes full-size patterns, a materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and a clear, color photo for each step.
