These pot holders are wonderful.Have you thought about stitching them together to make a rug? Really love your artwork and crafts .Your embellished coat is a masterpiece!


I know someone who made a rug like this with felted sweater loops. :)


thanks for the tutorial. the potholders are so cute and the pictures bring back memories of making them as a girl. i think i got the loom one year as a christmas present.


You are a genius!
I have been thinking about making potholder rugs for some time now. Crispina makes them. See her website.
However, I want to make them with woven wool and am still trying to figure out a way to do it. Your loop manufacturing demo has given me inspiration.
Thanks for your interesting and beautiful blog.

I made these and so did my son. And we used T-shirts too. worked well and washes up like a dream.. Thanks for sharing a great project for the beginning weaver!


What fun! Forgot about these! Thanks for the inspiration!

I can't be without these potholders. They insulate best and always take me back to when I was little back in the early '50s. It's the best "craft fix" when you don't have much time. Thanks for the tip on making more loopers!


How cool is that?!

Thanks for the tutorial. The all cotton loops are getting harder to find.

I've already sent the link to my sister, who can't imagine life without hand-made potholders.


I've always had a fondness for these. I made them as a little girl, my son and neices and nephews have made them. Now I'm looking forward to my great neices making them. Hmmmm....one of them has a birthday coming up. You've given me a great idea for her gift. Thank you!




We did a search tonight on "how to make potholder loops." Lo and behold... there you are! I made two from the more expensive loops that came with the loom we bought today but now we're headed to the basement for the PILES of old t-shirts we have. I think everyone is getting a set of these in their baskets this year for Christmas. WOOHOO!!

Thanks for the tutorial!

talk to you soon...
