Using up scraps

Since I can never bring myself to throw anything away, I have a pretty large remnant collection.

Lately I have an even larger scrap collection.  I mentioned before that I was working on an early Christmas project with flannel, and all the bits and pieces of all those cut-up flannel shirts and pajamas have been taking over.

Potholders to the rescue!  I've done these before, but generally in cotton fabrics, which I've found to be a bit on the flimsy side unless I use more batting/padding.  These are all a combination of flannel and denim, with the exception of the red, white and blue set which feature some of my aunt's chicken print apron fabric.

Because how can I not use a chicken print?

Potholders available in the Etsy shop.
