Potholder makers were a BIG gift idea for little girls back in the early 1950s…and they are still going strong!  Millions of these little craft projects have been sold by a variety of craft company over the years.

Who ever gave a potholder a second thought up until the1950s?  Your mom and grandmother had a couple of them, and had them forever.  And then along comes the potholder maker!  Girls started getting these items for Christmas in large numbers around 1952-1954.

Then….boom! All of a sudden, these multicolored, multilayer homemade goodies were adorning the oven handles of a million kitchens around the U.S.A.!  For many little girls, this was the first crafty item they ever made.

And for us boys…heck, the yarn loopers were great to shoot at your little brother with!
