Potholder Loom - A Fun Craft for Kids
This Klutz pot holder kit includes a project idea book, loom, hook, loops, plus more...
Many years ago, when I was a kid, I loved making pot holders on my red metal loom! I spent many hours picking out the loops in the my favorite color combinations. The finished pot holders were used for gifts for my Mom, Grandmother, sister, and aunts. It was special to me to make something by hand for them, and hopefully special for them to receive it.
Making a pot holder on a loom is simple enough for a young child to accomplish. I think almost every adult has made a pot holder on one of these looms as a child! Remember the challenge of getting those loops through without losing it off of the hook? I always had trouble finishing it off, but Mom was always there to help! Now, I'm the one helping Mom to finish it.
My Review - Potholders and Other Loopy Projects by Klutz!
I recommend this product, Potholders and Other Loopy Projects. I purchased this potholder loom for my 89 year old mom. who needed something simple to do that will keep her occupied and her mind active. I had been trying to think of something to get her, and happened to think of the fun I had with my pot holder loom. I wasn't sure about using the plastic loom, but it has worked just fine. No problems with loops coming off, warping, or breaking.
Loopy Projects Book I love the little book that comes with this set. It has complete instructions for making a potholder, as well as instructions for several different projects made with potholders, such as a pocketbook and even a checkerboard. It also has suggestion on how to combine your colors to make interesting designs for your potholders. Additional loops are available for making as many projects as you'd like. The loops do contain some nylon, so these are basically for projects or memento gifts, and not for use with very hot pans, because they will melt.
For the Young and Old This set is recommended for kids age 8 and over, but don't forget the older generation, too. This is a great tool for keeping elderly minds active! I have had many cherished hours with my elderly mom, making potholders together. We then give them to family members and friends as mementos. This is a great gift idea!
Includes: plastic loom, plastic hook, loops, and colorful book w/instructions for fun projects. Recommended for ages 8 and older.
Klutz Brand Potholder Loops - For all of your potholder projects!
These are the same loops that will come in your Klutz loom set, but the colors are slightly different shades from those in the set. You should stock up on these loops for all of your potholder projects. I've used several packs of this brand with no problem with fit or unraveling and are easy to weave. These loops are not cotton, so be careful if you use these for hot pots! These are best used for craft projects and decorations.
You Will Need Extra Loops
Stock up on loops because when you get started making these potholders, you will not want to stop!
This pack includes 150 loops that are stretchy and won't unravel. You will receive 6 colors including: cobalt blue, lime green, and berry purple. Colors may vary in each bag. I've used these loops with great success.
Note: These loops are for craft projects and are not cotton. They may melt under a very hot pot.
This is a great price, and qualifies for Amazon FREE Super Saver Shipping!
