Squares in a square in a bound frame! Blend 16 small squares into a finished 8½” square, highlighting each intersection with decorative stitching that is not only a gorgeous embellishment, but also holds together all the layers.
This project is designed to throw you a few curves. No worries though, we’re talking about beautifully curving circles and semi-circles. A free pattern and notes on using a Circular Sewing Attachment make things quick and easy.
Hot pads and oven mitts are great, but sometimes can be overkill when all you need to do is protect your hand when holding a hot pan or pot handle while cooking. Time to downsize with a slip-on hot handle sleeve.
Two hearts are better than one, and our heart shaped oven mitts are the perfect pair. They slip on to give you a protected, flexible grip. Free patterns are offered for both the full heart shape as well as the unique curved pockets.
This pair of oven mitts has a tough industrial style: clean lines, simple patterns + bold machine-inspired accents. Light to mid-weight canvas and denim are excellent choices. Neutral tones and simple patterns keep the utilitarian flair.
Start with an off-the-shelf hot pad and mitt set – we found ours for $2 – add some simple fabric and trim details and voila, style on a shoestring and a great first make. It’s also an excellent ScrapBusters project.
Are your potholders always on opposite sides of the kitchen when you need both to pull something out of the oven or off the stove? This two-handed design solves the problem and looks great doing it. Great gift idea!
Combine the wearable feature of an apron with the wipe-able feature of a towel to create our Wear ’n’ Wipe Kitchen Towel Scarf. A patchwork panel at the top loops around your neck; at the ends are absorbent towels.
Pretty patchwork with pie-shaped wedges spins into a full circle. There are free downloadable patterns for the front wedges and the back circle. A Janome Circular Sewing Attachment gave us those perfect concentric quilting circles.
Pull out some pretty fabrics from your scrap stash and blend them together into a happy mix of pattern and color. Each mitt uses up to four different fabrics. They’d make a great gift for wedding shower season!
The Janome Circular Sewing Attachment, Aurifil Thread, and multiple rows of decorative stitching work together to create a “round-tastic” set of hot pads. Add a special recipe or unique seasoning for an excellent gourmet gift.
This happy pair of hot pads is all about the beauty of a perfect line. We selected a wide stripe for the front, then highlighted it with parallel rows of bright decorative stitching. Wrap up several as a unique host/hostess gift.
