This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Pot holders and ovenmitts. These are just decorative items.

Unique Guid
EP Ready
CEP Required (I think)

Poly Count
Potholder - Hanging : 100
Potholder - Flat : 68
Ovenmitt - Hanging : 292
Ovenmitt - Flat : 260

Cloned From

Blender/Ultimate Unwrap 3d SimPE .43g (qa)
Mesh Tool 0.9.46

Recolour Information
Both the potholder and ovenmitts use custom textures and can be recoloured.

Each of the hanging version mesh contains the textures.
The flat of each shape "borrows" their textures from the hanging version.

The mesh contains the green and honeylocust recolour. I've included zips for the red and white recolour.

Installation Instructions
Unzip and put in Download dir (or below)

Hanging: Found in Kitchen, Decorative, Wall
Flat: Found in Kitchen, Decorative, Misc

As it uses alpha/beta tools, all my objects must be considered beta until otherwise stated.

Recolouring & Posting Policy
You may recolour as you desire. You may post your recolours, but you must not post the original mesh. Provide a link to the original mesh where you post your recolour.

At this time do not include my objects in any posted house /lots.


You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I was just thinking yesterday... Gee my Simmies need potholders to get stuff out of the oven. It always creeped me out that they'd just reach right in to take food out. Thanks!

These are wonderful; thank you!

Any chance of getting them in blue?

Yay! Another awesome upload from another awesome creator. Every download makes the game more realistic (and slower). Maxis forgets so many things...
