I cant wait to see what sewing is going on and maybe get more ideas and inspiration for Christmas projects!
Here's what I've come up with so far. I finally got around to making the kitchen hand towels that I've been dreaming up for several months now. These are kind of a combination of features I've seen on kitchen towels popping up around the internet...probably on Pinterest.
I loved the ruffles I'd seen and I liked the idea of having a loop on the top to attach to the oven door handle so I combined them into these little ruffly hand towels. Then I just added matching hot pad to make it a nice kitchen gift.
I made three sets using the Vintage Modern layer cake with quite a bit of fabric left over for more. And I made one for Fall/Thanksgiving with some fall fabrics from JoAnns.
Next up will be a couple of sets made with some Christmas fabrics. I know these may not be the most useful item in the kitchen. Maybe the ruffles are not appropriate for cleaning spills and drying dishes but they are pretty, I think. And pretty is a function, too, isnt it?
So now I think I will be making a couple sets of these using some Christmas fabrics. I'm excited to get to those ones but first I have a few quilt projects to work on and a certain pirate costume that is going to demand my attention. Oh, and speaking of Christmas I'm going to link up also to the Handcrafted Holiday group over on Flickr. I'm sure there will be lots of ideas for other holiday projects to be had! How is your holiday sewing coming along?
God bless and have a good week!
