Put Your Heart Into It

When it comes to keeping a handle on hot pots, have a heart! These handmade, heart-shaped potholders feature a casing made from a bold, upcycled sweater picked potluck-style from a charity store. And for extra protection when serving piping hot helpings, each one-of-a-kind potholder is lined with a soft post-consumer t-shirt. Handmade in the USA. Sold individually or in sets of two. Due to their handmade and upcycled nature, each potholder will vary.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

                  Comments about Potluck Sweater Potholders:

                  Because there was no picture of the exact product, I was unable to know what I was sending to my mother, and as it turns out what she received was NOT what I had meant to send her. I saw the heart shaped pot holders and that is what I wanted to send her. She said it was not shaped like a heart but more like a football. I would not have sent her that. I feel you misrepresented this gift.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I thought the heart shaped potholder would make a wonderful gift for my mother, but I was not given the option to choose the exact one I wanted to send(I ordered on line), and therefore she did not actually get a heart shaped pot holder but something she described as a football shape. I was blindly sending her something not knowing what the color would even be, spending my money on something for a loved one, and I feel you misrepresented this product, even though it could have been a wonderful gift.

                          Love that it was "potluck" and that it was made from upcycled sweaters. I received a very cute multi-color fair isle pattern. I plan to pair it with some homebaked goods to make a fun gift set.

                              I have yet to give this gift to my friend for Christmas but it is absolutely adorable! It's in the shape of a heart and it's red, so it can't get more perfect for the holidays. She's moving into a new house so it's also a great house-warming gift.

                                      These pot holders are fun to use and resist heat well. I was disappointed when I received only one, though. I thought they came as a pair! I notice that now it clearly states in the description that these are sold individually ~ that's new.

                                        This is not a very functional pot holder as the material is too slippery to hold hot heavy metal saucepans. The color I received is nice though, grey and red.
