We all made these as kids, right? With a motley crew of colors, and charmingly lumpy fabrics, these potholders were certainly a staple of my childhood. And I'm willing to bet many a mother has received these as gifts over the years.

While those initial potholders have their place (especially when made from recycled materials, and/or made from the heart), I do love this version from PurlBee. The small knit makes them delicate, and the colors make them modern. Just a little something to think about when you need inexpensive gifts, or some new kitchen wares for your own home.
