These Amish Potholders are a unique kitchen hot pads. Pot holders are very useful kitchen tools for safely removing hot pans from the oven. They can also double as a hot mat used to set hot dishes on the table. These potholders are a wonderful gift idea or simply a way to have a small piece of Amish culture in your kitchen! Made with two layers of fabric with a layer of batting in between, they work very well to keep one from burning themselves. Though we try hard to match the order exactly, it is not always possible due to fabric companies selling out, therefore fabrics may vary. Machine washable.
The term handmade is commonly used to describe crafts produced by an artisan rather than in a factory. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade item is unique. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these items. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary knife and sew them together on the sewing machine. The quilter works with merely thread, needle, and thimble to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and talent to create an item uniquely for you.
