After finishing my friend’s baby quilt this summer, I took a little break from sewing, but have still been planning projects. I’ve had the fabric for this project for a couple of months and just got time to finish it this weekend. It’s a housewarming gift for a friend at work and it includes the following items. An oven mitt from a pattern from the Denyse Schmidt quilt book.
A dishcloth apron from the Super Eggplant pattern.
And, two dishcloths from the Mason Dixon book.
Overall, this project was really fun! I did have some fights with my sewing machine at the end of the oven mitt and throughout the apron, but I like how everything turned out and I feel like I learned more sewing techniques throughout. If I make one of the oven mitts for myself, I will increase the size. I have big hands and this one is a bit small, but I think it will be fine for the recipient. I will gift this next week and have followed the method of including handmade and non-handmade items (a potholder, the dish soap, and the basket), so hopefully it will all be well received.
