This is how ideas work. Two weeks ago, after a long time of thinking about it, I made some Manly potholders. Potholders for men. So this weekend, I was thinking about my Manly Potholders and thought, now I can sell His and Her Potholders. For the house where both the man and woman cook there’s a potholder for each person. I imagined a little fabric sweetheart tying them together. Makes a nice gift, right?
So the next thing that came to my mind was if I can have His and Her Potholders why not Her and Her Potholders.
And of course, His and His Potholders.
Just last week someone asked me to make a couple of potholders for her friends, two women, who just got married after a 30 year relationship. Now I know my potholder are a bit (well, maybe more than a bit) stereotypical, all that pink flowery stuff for the girls and all those manly plaids for the boys, but it’s a good place for me to start and leaves lots of room to evolve.
So if you know a special Him and Her, or Her and Her, or Him and Him who might want a couple of potholders connected with a fabric sweetheart, just let me know, (you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org) I have a few in stock (thanks to Kim ) and will making more in the next few weeks. They are $30 per pair + $5 shipping. You can also order single potholders, for women or men, which are $15 each + shipping and reach me at Contact Me at the top of my page.
