Peas and Jam

On a recent thrifting trip, I bought a vintage craft book. It's from 1981 and while that's not usually a decade whose crafts I admire, this particular book had some real gems! Like giant crayons with faces in a GIGANTIC crayon "box". Adorable. Anyway it also had a pattern for mason jar potholders. I'm not sure if you know about my obsession with jars. Really, I love and collect all sorts of containers. But my favorite is the jar. I like them teeny tiny and super big. I also seem to have a bowl collecting problem, so much so that there are always bowls which cannot fit into the cabinets so they sit on counters and shelves. I can't seem to resist buying a lovely bowl or jar. So how could I resist making jar shaped potholders?

Clearly, I could not.

Lol I know just how you feel. I too have an obsession with bowls and jars, and now I'm starting to collect those fireking milk glass mugs as well. I don't think the cupboards will hold much longer. I adore your potholders! Will you be selling any in your etsy store?
