Have discovered the joys of using scraps for stuff. Been making some pot holders (if thats what you'd call them!?!) Been using them as pot stands and oven gloves. So much better than anything else I've used in the past.
Made them by patchworking scraps together, cutting circles of the patchwork and layering it with fleece (bought from a local charity shop) and a circle of very think cotton underneath. Pinned all the layers together, whacked a layer of bias tape aorund the outside and stiched together. So easy!
