Vintage Pot Holders

I love vintage pot holders.  They are smaller than ones we currently use so they are not very practical.  I like to use them for decor and for coasters.  It is amazing how many people do not use coasters under his or her drinks. The excuse I hear is that the table is not wood, or the table top has a finish to prevent water stain rings.  I still use coasters because I don't like the dirty spills or the wet ring.  I found a couple of unusual pot holders recently. 

I loved the rick rack woven into the pot holder.  My first prototype came out pretty big and had a few too many stitches in it making it ripple.  This prototype is in the background of the 2nd picture.  I made it pink and maroon.  I followed the example below with the exception of the size of yarn, hook, and rick rack.  If there is interest in this pattern, I can provide it for you.  No cost.

The pansies are reversible.  One side purple and one side yellow.  

What do you think about the pansy pot holders?

Have a great week!   Dawn
