I do technically love oven mitts more than I love potholders, but the fact that potholders sew up so much more quickly and simply leads me to sew many, many more of them than the more fiddly oven mitts. The beauty of this pocket potholder tutorial from Prudent Baby, however, is that the potholder? Has a pocket!
These pocket potholders sew up almost as quickly and simply as traditional flat potholders, and yet make mitts that are almost as cozy as oven mitts–a perfect combination!
