Jam & Jelly Jar Potholders
This is an intermediate crochet pattern requiring simple color changes and embroidery. Requires 100% cotton yarns and a size G hook. Finished size of your potholder will be 6 3/4 inches (17 cm) wide by 7 1/2 inches (19 cm) tall.
This pattern includes complete instructions, color photos, and embroidery charts for both the Jam and Jelly labels in a pdf file. My patterns also include a Helps & Hints section on the last page which explain and show (with photographs) techniques and steps that may be unfamiliar to you. Also included are explanations of special stitches and a list of abbreviations used in the pattern.
These potholders would look cute displayed on a kitchen wall. They are a fun and useful gift to make for yourself or for anyone who appreciates homemade jams, jellies, and sweet country goodness :)

Three patterns for one great price :) And these americana appliques are the perfect embellishment and so easy to make! Sew them onto purses, scarves, tote bags, backpacks, hats, or anywhere you like. You can also add a pin back to your appliques to make cute pins, or glue on a magnet to make refrigerator magnets (fridgies).
