When was the last time you sat down and leisurely made a woven pot holder on that tiny red square loom? You know the kind that is made with bags of stretchy cloth loops that are always way too small to fit from one side of the loom to the other....so eventually the whole thing pops off . In the end the finished potholder comes out to be about 5 inches wide and everyone knows you couldn't ever really use it. Anthropologie knows that too so they decided to find another use for the loopy thingys. If you are ever walking past their store check out the window displays. They are famous for using found objects in their installations and have great ideas that you can use at home.
