Every now and then, along comes a range of fabrics that perfectly suits a design. This lovely offering by Red Rooster is just such a range. Two place mats, to use separately or on top and underneath they adjustable casserole carrier, are accompanied by a pair of pot-holders with heat resistant fabric on the back. The pot-holders have simple stitchery (words) stitched in variegated Cottage Garden thread, and these are the star of the show. The carrier design incorporates sturdy handles that extend underneath the carrier for extra safety when carrying a hot casserole. The base of the carrier also has heat resistant fabric to keep in the warmth.
Such a stylish way to bring your offerings to a Christmas luncheon, or family gathering. And very practical to boot.
We designed this one with the idea of gift giving in mind. What a wonderful gift for a person who loves to cook, and the males in our midst would be proud to use these accessories. And just in time to whip it up for Christmas!
The range incorporates a panel for the place mats, and the pot-holders use part of this panel. The borders around the small squares at the centre of the pot-holders have simple stitchery words, worked in stem stitch using three strands, so it's a quick and easy way to personalize your work. If you prefer, you can use left-over fabric from the casserole carrier to border the central squares of the pot-holders, thus making the whole set even quicker to make.
The kit includes the pattern, as well as all fabrics required for all items pictured, including the heat resistant fabric needed for the backs of the pot-holders and the inside base of the casserole carrier.
One skein of Cottage Garden thread in "Mailbox" (CG 2005) is available as an extra for $7. Please nominate in the Comments Column if you would like us to include the thread with your order.
IMPORTANT NOTE: After cutting these fabrics, we discoverred a minor printing error in the red tonal fabric. It is barely noticeable, and certainly wouldn't be seen when used for the bindings and the handles. However, on the backs of the place mats and the underneath base of the carrier, it could be visible. For this reason, we have included in the first round of kits, extra co-ordinating fabric from the range to use for the backs of the place mats and the underneath base of the carrier, You will still receive the full amount of red fabric, should you decide to use this (as we did in the sample), and you will have the bonus of the extra co-ordinating fabrics to use for other projects, or for two extra place mats! PLEASE NOTE: This extra (bonus) fabric is not in the kits that are on special.
