Protect Your Hands.

I remember the days when I just popped in to any shop just to buy a pair of oven gloves. Not paying much attention to the design nor pattern just making sure they were the same colour as the kitchen.

Now that I have been on Etsy for a few years the first thing I do if I want anything is check out the handmade goodies.

In the search I typed in "oven gloves" not many pages and a few that were just like single mitts. I wanted a pair that were for both hands and all in one.

I found a gorgeous pair from the UK and she was good enough to double check the cost of shipping to Australia. Once she got back to me I made my purchase.

Now these are on the way to me from the UK. Cute aren' t they. Handmade by germang33K.
I also put out a plea to my fellow Dust Team members and Bontons came up trumps with this pair after showing me numerous materials and this was my chosen one. They are just awesome.

So don't forget peeps. Try Etsy first for your handmade goodies and if you don't find exactly what you want - ask!

I saw your chat about this in the thread and had considered putting my hand up to create some for you (but knew I'd be busy for a few days). Glad you got what you wanted and more!

I so agree with this sentiment! I have the most wonderful things from Etsy that I would otherwise have just bought from the local boring store.
