Vintage Mexican Themed Potholders

Donkey Sold

Last year, my friend Kim McMillan gave me a Vintage table cloth and napkins that she found at a garage sale.  They had a Mexican theme.  I imagine they’re from the 1960’s, some were more worn than others.    I used some of the fabric in a quilt a while ago, but I still have some left.

Cutting between the holes and stains I found a few images that I thought would make good potholders.

For these I went back to Bertha’s quilt to get some squares of fabric from the same era as the Mexican fabric as well as using some pieces of newer fabric and some Vintage fabric I had in my stash. I tried to keep the colors in a certain tone to match the feeling of the images.

I’ll be finishing these potholder by the beginning of next week.  So if you see one you like, let me know.   Like yesterday’s potholders they’re $15 each + $5 shipping for 1-2 and $7 shipping for 3 or more.

You can email me at [email protected]. I take checks and paypal.

I still have a couple of potholders from yesterday for sale.  And I made one more with a Scarecrow on it today.  You can see them all and the other potholders I have available here on my Buy My Art page at the top of my blog.
