Potholders

I know, I know.  A seemingly boring, dull and drab topic.  BUT NO!  Potholders can be beautiful and artful.

Ever since I became a 'maker', some 14 years ago, my appreciation for handmade has become prominent in my life.  I wouldn't consider buying a set of potholders at Target or Walmart (I haven't stepped foot in a Walmart in years).  Where did I go when I needed new potholders?  Why, Etsy, of course.

Surprisingly, I did not find a multitude of regular square potholders, which made my decision making quite simple.  The ones I did find, however, were absolutely gorgeous.  I selected these beautiful, miniature works of art from b taylor quilts.


There are all sorts of quilted goodies in that shop.  She doesn't stop at potholders.  Briana makes placemets, quilts, nesting bowls, coasters and an assortment of other items.

Good on you -those are great! My favorite set of (now really used) pot holders were also handmade and bought from a bazaar in Homer a few years ago! At first I was afraid to use them and one day was forced to and haven't looked back :o)

I love handmade pot holders and towels. I think they make a kitchen really festive and homey.
