Day 23: Childhood Memory Potholder

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

I’m not sure when these woven potholder crafts for kids were invented, but I know anybody around my age probably has fond memories of making these things.

I spotted this while browsing around Walmart tonight and decided that I HAD to have it! Plus, it was only $5. Please note how it says ages 5+! Haha, perfect for me! But honestly, I think this would be extremely difficult for a 5 year old.

Anyways, I know that you all probably know how to make these and I really need to go to bed, so I’ll spare you the written step by step and just show the pictures of each step.

My snazzy pattern for step 1 :)

Mid weave

Weave done! And so is step 2

By the way, this is where I always got extremely confused as a child. I remember getting to this point many, many times and never finishing it because I couldn’t figure out how they stayed together! I must admit that it still, at 23 years old, took me awhile to figure it out even with directions, so I don’t feel so bad about my little self’s failures. :D

Finished Potholder!

I finally figured it out and completed it! I may try one of these another day and see if I can create a more intricate pattern. But for now, this was a good glimpse back to my childhood. :)
