I love the oven mitts! I like that it is made of upcycled denim...I have made quilts, wall storage from leg on back and all pockets sewn on the front. Hang vertically. I make other potholders, also! This one of yours will make perfect gifts! Thank you!

I must check the bicycle tyre wallet. Looks very doable with a few tools.
