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. The red tonal fabric has some unevenness in printing, but this is barely noticeable. We have kept the price of the kit down because of this.
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.
