What's Cookin' In The Kitchen

 


I wish to thank Carla for hosting another fun HOP.  All things kitchen and it will be interesting to see what these host bloggers will inspire us to create:

Monday, April 19th


Tuesday, April 20th


Wednesday, April 21st


Thursday, April 22nd

I don't do kitchy stuff, but I would like to highlight my SIL's work.  She just loves to make these kind of things and always looking for something new. 


All kinds of pot holders: cupcakes, trees, pinchers, handle slide, leaves, etc..


A variety of pie, cake, and casserole carriers.   You can find this one HERE.


Always has an eye out for cute towels and pot holder sets on sale to make these oven front kitchen towels.  I'm not sure which tutorial she followed, but you can find one HERE.


And these 'scarf' towels are so cute!  There are so many all over the net, but HERE is a nice tutorial.

She, also, has made a lot of different styles of aprons, but I don't have any here to show you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now I couldn't just not try to do a project for this hop.  I am trying new techniques this year and on my list is the rope coaster, trivet, or bowl.


  A guild member gave me a bag of different ropes and I pulled this rather soft, nubby one as it is just a trial and to be sure I didn't kill my machine. (and I didn't want to wreck the good stuff)


A very poot try if I must say so.  BUT, I did try and I did make a coaster which I'll use at the computer for my coffee cup.  I think I'll leave the bowl making to someone else and buy one.  It's always good to try new, but don't beat yourself up if it just isn't 'you'.  We can't master it all.

Enjoy the HOP

Sewingly Yours,

Sharon

  1. Your SIL really loves kitchen sewing - so many great projects! Your new coaster looks great and everytime you place your coffee cup on top of it, you'll think of this blog hop :)

  2. Nice projects from your SIL. Your coaster came out well. You could also make a larger trivet with the rope, which is easier than a bowl shape.

  3. Your SIL has some wonderful projects! I'm glad you shared them. The rope can be awkward to sew but they make some neat items. Good for you for trying it out! Thanks for sharing everything.

  5. Great projects by your SIL but more importantly, amazing job at trying something new and pushing yourself. Great rope coaster. Thank you for sharing!

  6. I think that coaster might be starting out not quite so loved, but I think it is going to find a special place in your heart because of it not being cookie cutter perfect, but having an attitude and personality of its own.

  7. I cracked up on your bowl making adventure as I was going to make some rope bowls too. I bought the rope and watched the videos, and decided it wasn't my thing. LOL Your SIL made some really fun kitchen things. Thanks for sharing!

  8. You go girl...you can't say you hate it if you've never tried it. Rope bowl making takes a little practice, but surprisingly doesn't seem to faze the sewing machine. I kind of like sitting down and stitching them. I loved seeing all your SIL's kitchen projects. You will laugh when you see me post on Wednesday. LOL!!

  20. Hey, Sharon, nice to "see" you again. I tried a rope bowl once and broke a needle. I just don't have the knack for crafts.
