Title: Yet More Shirtless Hunks In The Kitchen
Post by: TheMistressT on November 17, 2008 04:50:15 PM
I didn't think I would post more beef cake pot holders, but then I went and found a new-to-me print!  Dang it!  I simply HAD to make 'em and then, of course, I had to share 'em.

I've started naming the fellas, since we spend so much time together.


Jack


Cliff


Satchel


Rod


Sy

Thanks for taking a gander!

Great fabric!!! Love 'Jack'! :P :P Nice job!!!

Thank you!  I have some plans for some other images of "Jack" from my yardage - stay tuned!   ;)

PS Your adding one of my construction workers to your wist is what inspired me to make them for my etsy.  I made a bunch for my first craft faire last weekend and sold out! 

Those are awesome! Where is that fabric from?  I need to make something out of it for my boys.....

It's Alexander Henry fabric and it's called "Outdoorsy Type" the date on it is 2007.

Thank ya, ma'am!  I have an idea cookin up in my head to do with another image of Jack. Hehehehe!

I don't even cook, but I want to when I make these things!  Sure would make the drudgery more tolerable.   :o

Absoluty hillarious. I feel now that my kitchen is missing beef cake pot holders!!

Like all of the ones I've done, this is Alexander Henry fabric.  It's called "Outdoorsy Type" and dated 2007.  I found it on ebay.

I think Rod and his cute little butt is my favorite! You always make such awesome stuff!!!

Well, thank you!  Rod is also my favorite.  His legs (partly cut  off in the pot holder making process) are a lot like The ManFlesh's legs and they are beautiful legs.  A bunch of women would kill to have such nice legs as he has.  Sigh.

What a great package these would make  ;) My favorite is Rod, I think.

Great job as usual, T!

Thank you C McC!  Like I mentioned above, Rod's my favorite, too.  Although Sy is the first of the blondes that I find attractive of all the half-dressed beef cake pot holders I've made.

I have to say, I am partial to Satchel, but Rod comes in a close second  ;)

I, too, now feel that my kitchen is poorer for not having a selection of beefcake potholders. Awesome.

Thanks, MimiW!  Satchel does have an attractive brooding quality, that's for sure.

Aw, thanks!  It is sometimes nice to open a drawer and find a half-dressed hunk in there ready to help.

If I had a kitchen, I sure would like to have some good company like that in it...it would even work without the kitchen come to think of it...

These are so funny!  I'd probably burn my fingers instead of risking a burn to the hot hunks!

Thanks!  I've given a few (in other styles of shirtless men) as gifts and been commissioned to make few for gift-giving and they've been big hits!

That's my kind of thinkin!  Thanks!

I chuckle the whole time I'm making them!  Nice thing is that the back is a scorch-proof, quilted fabric made with aluminum, so you put the hunky side against your palm and the back against the danger!

Soooo super cool. They remind me of the NY firefighters calendar- a staple in my house for the last 2 years. Way to go for hot men!

Thank you!  I did firefighter ones awhile back - very popular at the craft fair.  Ahem.

Thank you!  I've only ever made potholders and boxer shorts out of this type of Alexander Henry fabric and wonder just what else one could make myself.  A lot gets wasted with the potholders and it seems a bit of a shame.

MissT - the odds and ends can be used for quilts. Some ppl on Craftster are making postage stamp quilts which uses squares as small as 1.5". You could provide them scraps in swaps.

Post by: SophieAnn on November 26, 2008 11:35:00 AM
These are fantastic!

Where did you get the scorch-proof fabric for the backing?!?

I have seen the outdoor men and firemen fabric on ebay here - for everyone else who wants some too!
http://stores.ebay.ca/Emerald-City-Fabric-and-Craft_Alexander-Henry_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZQ2d1QQfsubZ6800013QQftidZ2QQtZkm

There are cowboys too!

Can we see a close-up of one of the labels?  I notice there's a little label on each one...

If I only had a bigger house and a bigger wallet... That link has some really fun fabrics.

That's a great idea for the scraps!  After the holidays I might just have it together to gather all that up and see if I can't work a swap with someone.
It sells out fast at my local fabric shops, but when I do find it they're usually having a sale or I have a coupon.  ;)

I got it at the fabric store over by the interfacing that's on bolts.  It comes on a roll.  There is also stuff called Insul-brite that is similar, but not exactly the same (at least from what I could see) that is sold in packages in the same area. It's also called ironing board cover material and similar.

I have gotten some of my fabric from that ebay seller and it's always been very fast and trouble free.  I've made cowboys, firemen, construction workers and these as well as some with some retro-style girl pin-ups  called "The Great Outdoors".  So fun!

My shop posting has a close up of the label that I made using facric that you can print on with an inkjet printer.

I was wondering about printing on fabric with inkjet. Is it permanent? Which one do you use? Is it light fast too?


Title: Re: Yet More Shirtless Hunks In The Kitchen
Post by: TheMistressT on November 26, 2008 07:44:58 PM
It's made by Jacquard, they claim it's washable and I washed on item that was only black ink in a front-loader and it came out just a bit faded, but not much.  I don't know about light.  I haven't noticed an issue in indoor, ambient light, but UV might fade it (like most things).  If you PM me, I'll look at the package and give you more info later when I have some more time.

Wah, I'm on a fabric diet! Another set of your potholders, on a fabric-empty stomach, that's just too much :) Man, these guys are campy :) They'd be so much fun to have on my kitchen. It was a good decision of you to show these guys separately, every one of them looks so much better that way.

"Campy" hahahaha!  Indeed they are.  And thank you for the support on showing them separately - I think they deserve to have the spotlight each to themselves... I mean, they work hard (on their abs).

I can no longer picture them as anything but kitchen gear.  I wonder what other people use it for?
