I made two pairs of these as wedding gifts. They started out as square but I thought they were too wide, so I took a plate to them and made them this shape instead. Similar to the pot holders I made a while back. I used a new heatproof batting in these, which worked better than lots of layers of cotton batting as I’d done before. I was really pleased with how they turned out, I just hope they are as practical as they are good looking!
