i had made some of these potholders several years ago. a friend from work had made some and
gave them to peter and i as a gift. i liked them so much that when they started to wear out, i really
wanted another pair, and so got the instructions to make them myself.
it has been quite a few years since i have made some for myself and for my mom, and others.
the one that is finished, in this photo, is one that i had made and was never used. and the other one
i had started and didn’t finish.
a few weeks ago i was invited to a friend’s house to do crafts. she gathers a few friends every
couple of weeks for crafty thursday. i didn’t have any craft thing that i was working on, so i dug
into my material stash and pulled this out. now i’m back into making them. it’s a good thing too,
because the pair that i made a while back are now starting to wear out.
i tell you, these are the absolute best potholders that i have ever used. totally bendable and just the
right thickness. i usually sew them together by machine, but, this time around i’m stitching them by
hand so i can easily transport and work on them.
