My son is in his first year of preschool and has some wonderful teachers. I was inspired to make patchwork potholders as gifts for the teachers. Potholders are humble but can be beautiful and oh so useful.
I had seen something by My Girl Thursday on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.
They were a small and quick project that let me use fabric that I own—perfect!!
Then…. my four year old son wanted to help me. Sure.
It was fun to have him involved. I let go of my perfectionist self and embraced the process with him. We had a blast.
Some of the potholders are a little wonky, but hey, I can’t blame it all on my son. 🙂
Next, I had fun wrapping the potholders using plain natural tissue paper, little bits of ribbon, and some cute gift tags from Target.
Now I had better look at my own collection of potholders in my kitchen drawer.
Yikes! I should have made some for myself!
