At the begiining of the year there was a “Handmade – Pay It Forward” challenge going around on Facebook. Sounded like fun to me. You promised to make something handmade in 2011 for the first 5 people that commented on your post.

My favorite potholders / hot pads are the ones made out of cotton loops. It’s sorta difficult these days to find the bright colored loops. Alot of what you find in the craft store are nylon and yucky. But, I found these, made by Harrisville Designs, also sold on Amazon.

I made two potholders for each of my 5 people and sent them out last week.
