I have a lot of vintage potholders hanging around my kitchen, but this one was my favorite and I wanted to do something different with it. So, I crocheted a simple square pillow with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn to the size I wanted. Then I sewed the potholder on. It makes me smile. Really with pillows like this you could make pockets and put a teddy bear in it, an old pretty hankie, anything that is special to you.
