Strawberry potholder

Pin It

I had been wanting to do these ornamental potholders for a long time. So I started out with a vintage strawberry potholder pattern but I am not sure if I followed the pattern correctly because the strawberry turned out too small. It was more like an applique strawberry rather than a potholder. So I made a square with double crochet stitches and sewed the strawberry onto it.


I forgot to make a stalk for the strawberry. It would have made the strawberry look even better. I got the pattern for the strawberry from here.



Have a nice weekend.

  5. Viji ma'am, happy to hear that you are in Delhi. Let me know if you will be able to visit me. I usually buy yarns from Sadar bazaar but you have to search for the shops. There are just a few from where you can buy, others are all wholesale shops. It is a very big bazaar and very congested also. I don't know about Gurgaon. There may be shops there too.
