I love vintage doilies! My great-grandmother made beautiful doilies, and it’s a talent that simply was not passed down to me. I have tried to crochet, and it has always ended up as a disastrous mess. I was so excited to find some crocheted (thread) potholders.
I knew I didn’t want to use these at potholders…I value my fingers too much to rely on two layers of thread for heat protection…but these were just so cute!
What I used:
· Crochet Potholder – green/pink potholder (about 6" around) was $0.29 and the green potholder (about 5" around) was $0.65 at local thrift shop
· Closure – 4” zipper was $1.49 and coin purse clasp was $3.99
· Thread, Needle, & Scissors
1 Hand-wash the potholders and dry
I made them both in about two hours—while I was half watching TV. It really was a super simple project. I think that they are cute. What do you think?
