I joined a potholder swap over at Aunt Pitty Pat's.  It's been a busy swap month for me.

My partner for this swap was Melinda.  I was going to use these selvages for day purses but never got around to finishing them. They have been sitting next to my sewing machine for awhile now waiting for me to decide what to use for handles.

I happen to glance down at them the other day and realized they would be perfect for potholders. There are selvages on both sides of all three. They may not be the standard potholder size but I like my potholders a bit longer than the ones you can buy at the store.

When I was flipping the potholders over to get a pic of the other side I accidentally snapped a picture. I love this shot.

Great way to use up those selvages! Very cute and useful!

Those are really nice. I like long potholders too.
Haha, "out of the box" photo is right!

What a great use of selvages, love the pot holders.
Great accidental photo.

I like my potholders bigger too....more to grip and covers more.

Robin, these are perfect pot holders! Thank you for sharing the idea. I will be making some to replace the collection of pot holders sitting in my drawer - full of scorched spots and burn holes!
