3321  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Quilted Skillet-Handle Sleeve (Potholder for Cast Iron Skillet Handle) on: June 17, 2010 07:25:30 PM
So, ever since I did the Recipe Swap, and received a recipe for Jambalaya from HippieKender, my husband has developed an interest in Cajun/Creole food.  He's been reading up an various dishes, and wanted to make Etouffee tomorrow night, but realized that we don't have a cast iron skillet.  (Which clearly I should have registered for when we got married.  I did register for, and received a cast iron dutch oven, but apparently Jim really needs a skillet.)  So we headed over to Target to pick one up today, and while we were there, Jim started looking around for one of the covers you put on the handle, since the whole pan heats up so much.  I offered to make him one, but he just said, "Honey, your crafty dance card is too full to make me one."  Well, that settled it.  I clearly needed to drop what I was doing, which happened to be making quilted potholders for the Potholder Swap, and make him a handle sleeve.  I had him pick out some fabric from my scrap bins, and made this for him, while he was busy seasoning his new pan.   




The fabrics are 100% cotton, and it has a layer of cotton batting, as well as a layer of Insul-Brite in it.

Thankfully it fit well over the handle, and Jim really seemed to like it.  He even made home fries and schnitzel for me in his new pan tonight.

Neat!  I can't wait to find out how this comes out!  My husband brews his own beer, and has made hard cider before, but we haven't tried making wine yet....

Oh my goodness!  I'm so going to be sucked right into this, aren't I???  ::Rushes off to finish potholders for Wulf, so she'll be done swap crafting and can therefore have no excuse but to join::

These are beautifully done!  Delicate without being too fragile looking, feminine but not fussy.  They'd be really fun with a steampunky bustle skirt and leather buckled corset.  Wisted!

The next step of my potholders for the swap requires me to head up to my costume shop tomorrow and use the serger.  (I could dig mine out of the basement, but it's probably in need of a servicing, whereas the one at work is all oiled and threaded and ready to go.)  So, since I couldn't be working on Wulf's potholders, I whipped up one that I'd been daydreaming up for Pinkleo.  It's too cute for words.  Seriously adorable.  I can tell I'm going to be hooked on making these for a while.  I think this is what everyone is getting for Christmas this year.  And I'll have all my presents ready months in advance!
3330  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Fabric Bookmarks - HP, Twilight, and Nature Themed on: June 14, 2010 09:53:26 PM
In the last few months I've been making lots of fabric bookmarks.  Many of which were sent in the Bookmark Swap, Round 2.  They were all made the same way; bagged out, flipped, and then top stitched.  The holes for the tassels were made as button holes, and the tassels were bits of yarn, ribbon, and trim that I looped through the button holes.  Some of them have charms, coins, and buttons tied into the tassels.  Enjoy!
