Ok, I have a secret love…yes, that’s right, funky hotpads.
I love hot pads, we just don’t use them enough! My great grandmother had a kitchen drawer full of the most amazing kitschy hotpads from the late 40’s-the 60’s…I played with funky faces, puppy dogs, and dressed the hot pads with floral hotpads, some of them were tatted, some were crocheted; I loved these useable fun objects!
Say what you will about the hotpad, but it is a useful object that deserves acclaim!
And CLF member Clelil made this beautiful floral hotpad by Loretta Schepp, the pattern is available here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/starburst-hotpad-pattern
Clelil! You earned this award for the mostest Kitschalicious fabo hotpad I’ve seen in a while! Form and function, pleasing to the eye and USEFUL…best of both worlds..
Congratulations! Clelil the winner of the Kitschalicious Award for outstanding potholder hooking!
