Does anyone else remember these?I remember making potholders when I was in elementarty school. We would make them all year long so that we could sell them in the garage sale that our mom had every summer. I think we would sell them for a nickel... which, looking back, was a stinkin' good deal!
Anyway, Sarah got a potholder kit for her birthday in September and she decided to get it out today. She did a good job with it, but got tired of it around the 10th band that she was weaving through. She said, "Mom, you can finish it if you want to."
I was all over that. After all, who doesn't enjoy a little walk down memory lane? I quickly figured out why I would sometimes get frustrated when I got down to the last couple of bands. All of the others would start popping off of the little "teeth". I also know now why I always had my mom take it off of the loom. I had a hard enough time doing this one, I can't imagine trying to do that part as a 7 year old!
My mom always used the potholders that I and my sisters made for her. Actually, she still does. I now have my first official homemade potholder made by my daughter...with a little help from me. :)
