Estate Sale potholders


On one of my flea market trips, a vendor was selling some items he had purchased at an estate sale.
My eye caught sight of these adorable potholders and I had to buy them. They are smaller than average but so well made and so adorable.
The stitches are so tiny and the blocks so miniature that these would be hard to replicate.

They are really pretty, do you use them?

Very pretty! Are you going to hang them for decoration?

Jean said...

Wow, it's funny that someone made something that small and precise, and then turned it into a potholder! Maybe she made them as a decoration, as they don't look very worn (or burnt, like mine!)

Great find!

Nice potholders. So bright. The owl quilt is a sweet one. I like the fabrics Pat used. The Christmas Cottage Wally is going to be a nice welcome at your back door and happy blogaversary!

Oh my! I have small potholders, that migrated to my daughter's play kitchen because I couldn't stand how small they were, but they are nothing compared to your special find.
