Perlers and Potholders
First I did a melted Perler bowl using the colors of the potholder loops. I attached a chenille stem to create a handle and then tied loops on the handle. It creates a cute little basket for Jelly Bellies (wouldn't this be cute at Easter?).
I saw the loops used to decorate flip flops at a craft fair I attended last week. I also helped finish a potholder recently for my aunt who had started it and we were discussing how we much preferred the cotton over the nylon potholders....I said, Yes, the nylon ones came out so small they were only good to be a coaster. Since I think in the "If you give a mouse a cookie" pattern, the next thing I knew, I was making a coaster out of the nylon loops....then I was making a coaster holder out of Perlers...
