Remember these fabrics? So far they have made this:
It's official name is the bread-taker-outer - for removing hot bread from the stone in the oven. And it's a birthday gift to my husband, Nick. He has become the bread baker in our home, baking bread each weekend for us to chow on throughout the week - as pb&j breads, toast, sandwiches, dipping, slathered with hummus, soon topped with tomatoes, or even plain. I found our potholders to be insufficiently large for such a task. So I made one. It measures about 10.5 inches by 6 inches, and is made with quilters cottons and 3 layers of natural cotton batting. I made an initial version and had WAY a LOT of trouble with the binding (sensing a pattern here?). So I made a second one whose binding is still flawed, but at least I can stand to be in the same room with it!
So, happy bread baking to you, Nick. I'm hoping for lots of breads coming soon to a table near me. And an early Happy Birthday to you (really it's tomorrow, but I couldn't wait).
I have one other project in mind for these fabrics...
