I just want to “putz” with little projects. You know, those small items that would make the perfect hostess gift or “little something” as a ‘thank-you’ token. Usually, I try to think of those things (most often in my kitchen!) that get used all the time and I never seem to remember to replace/throw out. HOT PADS!!!! Why is it that we don’t throw the old ones out and put some pretty ones in their place?? Go ahead……..go look in your kitchen. I bet the potholders you will find are scorched, gummed up (remember that last apple pie that ran over??) and desperately in need of big help! OK, you get my point! I go through a ton of “Insul-Brite” in my little sewing abode! In fact, it’s on my list for the next shopping trip. Anyhow, to get to the point of all this……..I do quite a bit of cooking with pans that have metal handles and covers that have metal knobs. Example: cast iron pan/kettles. LOVE THEM!!! Nothing like a good cast iron grill pan, or fry pan, for getting that yummy brown crust on a piece of meat! (Hmmm, is it lunch time yet????) So, these are what I came up with…….. The skinny rectangles are insulated handle covers for those heavy iron pans and the cute little pocket-y things are small grabbers for those lid knobs/handles that your fingers have been just begging for!!!!! (Ouch!!) Isn’t that dinner roll fabric just the best???!!!! And I love the retro feel of the plaid/daisy combo. Once again, if you want the dimensions/patterns, let me know and a future posting will be put up!
Happy sewing to you all!!!
