One of the least respected tools in the kitchen: the potholder. It shouldn’t be, they’ve kept my hands from getting burnt a time or two. I was recently lucky enough to acquire this little lovely from Ayumills‘ etsy shop the other day. I’ve given it a test drive a couple times now, it’s lovely! Hopefully I can add to this potholder a collection of a few more, then those crazy potholders might not go so unnoticed.
I made these two potholders with the leftover scraps from the apron I made – to be included with the happy retirement gift.
I followed Tallgrass Prairie Studio’s
, but I had some issues with the binding. Not sure if it’s the way I put mine on or what, but I ended up making my binding 2 inches wide instead of her suggested 1.5 inches. Either way, I like the way they turned out.
If you’re interested in making a couple potholders and sharing them with an online friend and getting two in return, stop by Amy’s During Quiet Time
blog and sign up for her Potholder Pass
that she’s hosting. Today’s the last day to sign up, so don’t miss out. Be sure to send her all the info she’s requesting otherwise you won’t be able to participate! Have fun!
