My Great Grandma Hall was fantastic at sewing and embroidery. She made this potholder and eventually passed it onto my mom. My mom still uses it and will likely never part with it. Since it is literally falling apart (and dirty) I decided to copy the pattern and make a new one for my mom's birthday.
It was very enjoyable to take something vintage and give it a fresh look. I was happy to make it in honor of my great grandmother.
