A pocketed pot holder is great because it allows you to protect your whole hand inside, so you don’t lose your grip and get a burn. This pocket doubles as a setting for festive silverware applique, though you could customize to feature a monogram or any design of your choice.

Turn two pairs of old jeans into a pair of pocket pot holders! Since each pair of jeans has two back pockets, each pocket is a front or back of this denim hot pad. Protect your hands and fingers from dishes that are too hot with durable denim. This pattern can be dressed up to look masculine with the right coordinating fabric, so get ready for the summer barbecues!

It’s an apron. It’s a hot pad. It’s the amazing hot pad apron! This half apron sewing pattern comes with instructions for built-in pot holders, so you’ll never risk losing them. To make this apron, I used a pattern from the book “Fabric-by-Fabric One-Yard Wonders,” though I’ve also admired this hot pad apron tutorial (with a secret phone pocket) at Merriment Design.
