Potholder Loom with Loops

Potholder Loom and LoopsFor many of us, the potholders we made for our mothers and grandmothers were our first experience  with craft kits.  Making the potholders with the cotton loops and potholder looms were easy and we felt such a sense of accomplishment.  Especially when our moms praised our work and used the potholders for their intended purpose.  I fondly remember my potholder making days, which is why I am reviewing the potholder looms today.

Kids love making special gifts for their moms and most moms cook.  Therefore, the handmade potholders are the perfect gift for mothers anytime, and for any reason.  They are a wonderful way to say I love you Mom!  Plus, they always remind her of a child’s love and thoughtfulness.

I admit, as a child, I had no idea I was learning how to crochet a single chain stitch by finishing the potholder edges.  That may well be why basic crocheting came so easily to me when I was a young teenager.

The finished potholders make a fabulous gift for anyone who cooks.  Plus, they are truly a wonderful beginner craft that encourages a child to be creative.

Potholder Loom & LoopsTip for moms:  If you have never made a potholder on a loom yourself, buy a kit for yourself and learn with your child.  If you already know how to make them, be available to help your child as they learn.  You might even consider buying the Potholder Pro kit which was created for larger hands.  Oh, and be sure to buy extra loops so you and your child can continue to make additional potholders for everyone in the family.

Crafting together always creates great memories!

Moms, please show how much you appreciate your child’s handiwork by actually using the potholder they make for you.

    Potholders and Placemats were a staple gift in our family. I think everyone I know has had a set of these made by kids who are learning to use their fingers and hands. It’s a great way for young ones to learn how to make and how to give gifts. I like that they are still available too! Thanks for this!

  2. I remember so well making these loom potholders. It truly was my first introduction to crafting, which I do to this day.

  3. Even I remember making potholders when I was young. I don’t think I had a kit, but I know my mom helped me learn to make them somehow. I did get satisfaction from completing one. I think I did it with a spool knitter and then I crocheted the resulting rope of yarn. I probably would have done better with a kit like this, but I don’t think they made them back then.
