Kitchen Love...A New Pattern!!!...

My new pattern for the kitchen canisters is ready!!! 
The pattern is called 
and it took me quite a while to finish it up because
 I kept on making projects to add!
I finally just had to stop because 
I seriously couldn't fit one more thing 
into the pattern:)

I really love making things for my kitchen and
 for other kitchens as well in the form of gifts:)

Included in the pattern is are my Day's of the Week dishtowels.
I used ready made flour-sack dishtowels by
and sewed fabric along the bottom after embroidering
 the days of the week with perle cotton. 

As well as dishtowels for hanging on the oven door.
The top is made using my large 
 I sewed rid-rac and my new ribbon along the bottom for trim.

A hot pad stitchery pattern is included
"Farm Fresh"
I used my Circle Ruler to sew a perfect circle after stitching.

Another fun little project is a fabric bowl!
I used my small Hexie Half Ruler for the bottom and
 my small Thimble Ruler for the side sections.

This would make a great little gift basket filled with all kinds of goodies..
or even a fun thread catcher.
I'm using it my kitchen to hold my mini
 "Hot Hexie's"
which I'll be telling you about in a minute.

The bowl is fast and easy to construct.
You just need 14 - 5" squares and some leftover batting.

I also used my 
to make these fun
"Strawberry Squared" potholders.

The back becomes quilted at the same time the strawberry top is sewn on.

Now for my large "Hot Hexie" potholders.
These are so fast and easy to make!
30 minutes tops including sewing on the hanging ring.
All you need is the large
 3 - 10" squares of fabric and a 10" square of insul-brite.

One 10" square is for the back, one for the front, and one for the pocket!
The pocket on these Hot Hexies make it easy to 
slip your hand inside for folding when 
taking something hot out of the oven...
and is also perfect for gifting!

I think they are cute on their own ...

And even cuter filled with a few kitchen goodies for a fun gift.

Of course I made small ones using 5" squares 
along with my small Hexie Half Ruler.
I added a little bit of ribbon to these for extra cuteness:)

The small size is perfect for protecting your fingers while 
using the microwave!

The pocket is perfect for an herbal tea bag and sweetener 
or a small packet of hot cider or cocoa.

They are also the perfect size to use as a coaster!

There are so many possibilities for things
 to place in the cute little pockets:)

Didn't I tell you that 
I love to make things for my kitchen?????

Just take a look!!!

I hope you like my new pattern as much as I do!
Tell me if you think these would look cute in your kitchen too:)
I'm planning on making projects from 
"Kitchen Love" for
 Christmas gift giving to friends,
 co-workers and neighbors.
Let me know what you think!
