This is a uniquely shaped pot holder or oven mitt, in that it is house shaped. My dad, a realtor, co - invented this with me, and I make them, for him to give to his customers during the holidays.
The download has 2 sizes, 8x10", and 9 1/2" x 11", to make.
Their is a pocket for the hand to grasp the potholder, and their is a loop on the back to hang the potholder. You can modify the loop, I show it with a metal key chain ring, inserted through the loop. You can also add a button hole at the top, centered, if you wish.
The house shape kitchen potholder is very insulated, I use double the amount of Insul Bright heat reflective batting, and double the amount of Therma Flec, silvecloth, ironing board, utility fabric.
This makes a great gift for a housewarming party, new homeowners, 1st time homeowners, even realtors or mortgage brokers. You can also hang these as pockets to store papers, or what not.
