I love these little vintage crocheted clothes! I buy them whenever I find one at a reasonable price:
The last two I have found were at thrift shops!
I have them all hanging in the laundry room:
I have always heard that they were created as pot holders. I don't know about you, but I sure wouldn't want to hold a hot pot with only one of these little cuties as protection!
They make a sweet decoration, though.
