A very close friend of mine made these potholders for a girlfriend's wedding. The pictures do not even do them justice. She got all the wool fabric from thrift stores, then felted it in the washing machine. She designed and sewed them all herself. I love that they are naturally flame retardant by being 100% wool. I totally hijacked them when I saw them at her house and took photos. My personal favorite is the bird nest. Thank you for letting me post this very talented and inspiring friend who I also happen to love very much!
