I use these from time to time and always think of my Gram.
I really should use them more. The round one in the photo above is older than the rest. I will guess that is from the 70’s. It is quite possible I made the lavender one in the photo below with the pink edging. I remember working on a lavender one, I just don’t remember finishing it..maybe Gram finished it… I just can’t remember.
This is one of my favorites. I use this one everyday.
I really want to make a few more of these handle holders. It is so handy to use and so nice to look at too.
I am going to march into the kitchen right now and put these pot holders on the top of the pile. I think it is a good idea to use them more often. I used to “save” all this nice linens and towels and miscellaneous things for special occasions. I have (mostly) gotten over that and use the vintage hand towels and linens every day now. They don’t do any good in the box or folder neatly on a shelf or in a drawer. I would rather use them and enjoy them. So now I will do that with these potholders Gram made too.
