Americana Crochet Potholder

Wednesday, June 26, 2019



Hello blog friends.    Can you believe it's already the end of June?  I know the summer is going to fly by and next week is already the 4th of July!

I want to THANK everyone who visited my blog and left such sweet comments regarding the Birthday Oatmeal cookies I made for my daughter.  THANK YOU also to everyone who visited my daughter's blog, This Fashion Girl, left comments on her blog, and her YouTube video.  If you missed that post you can read about that HERE.


I recently crocheted these Americana themed potholders one afternoon.  

This is such a fun and easy crochet project and I'd love to share it with you.





They would look great to use for a 4th of July party.





These potholders are so simple and can be made in just a few hours.

They make great gifts and are perfect for the kitchen.
