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
