Cute in the Kitchen

11/07/2012

OK, it’s not stamping, but it is craft. I’ve made this oven cloth using some cotton yarn handknitted in moss stitch (yes, Mum – I knitted it), backed by a cute fabric square, sandwiching a piece of batting in the middle.

I handstitched the backing on with blanket stitch (though I did consider cracking the sewing machine out first), and secured the ring in the corner so it can be hung up. I got the idea from Wild and Woolly Yarns, a fabulous wool shop in Devonport, Auckland (just up the road from the Naval Base – how convenient!).  I’m enjoying a spot of knitting and crochet at the moment, but will share some more stamping with you after Stamp Club tomorrow night. Keep warm, and happy stamping!

    Did you knit the knitted part? and who taught you blanket stitch. Maybe there’s some hope for a home for my fabric stash eventually, after all! I am impressed. Well done

      Thanks Mary. Yes, I knitted it, and I learnt blanket stitch when I was 12, in Form 2 Home Economics. Don’t sound so surprised! There’s plenty more to come. xoxoxo
