Christmas in the Kitchen
Over the weekend I was looking over all the Christmas patterns. There are more than I thought! I'm rather fond of poinsettias and realize I have a number of patterns that have poinsettias in them.
They range from my table runner set...
To my tree skirt...
A Stained Glass wall hanging...
and my Kitchen set which includes apron, towel, pot holders and coasters.
It was the latter that I transferred into a download pattern and launched on the website yesterday. The applique design comes in two sizes, one for the towel and a smaller one for the pot holders.
It is easy to round off the corners on the pot holder if you don't want to do mitered corners! Or eliminate the tab and use at make a pot mat or heat pad.
The larger size design is used on the towel.
Of course, you could always make bathroom towels like this too!
I cross-hatched the bib on the apron which worked out rather well, but isn't necessary if one doesn't want to do that. I do like the tartan bias though, it really finishes it off. I purchased fabric to make my own, however tartan bias is available to purchase.
The coasters are really easy. I need to make more of these. They make really nice gifts and they are so quick.
Deanna made them and entered them in a country fair in Nebraska. She received "first place" and "best of lot" awards. Awesome!
