I found a cute pattern for chicken pot holders at the LQS. You slip your hands into the chickens wings to protect you from the heat. I am going to make up a few pairs to take to the family reunion for the auction. Every third year we have a family reunion in Kansas. We have an auction from family donated items to make money for the next reunion. Handmade stuff sells really well. The pattern is by PM Lane's Patterns. They didn't have a website. The pattern sews up nicely but it isn't a beginner pattern! Lots of thick places to sew through. I love them. Hope everyone loves them at the reunion!
