An Easy to Sew Project Was a Kitchen Helper

I baked oatmeal raisin cookies as a sweet treat for my husband and I this last week. Since the oven was on I made a dinner casserole, too.  I started with the cookie batter, gathering supplies, incorporating the ingredients as I moved around the kitchen. I put the dishtowel down here or there as I worked and was becoming frustrated when I couldn’t find it immediately. I wasn’t using my time efficiently UNTIL I remembered the easy to sew Kitchen Boa Scarves I made for Christmas gifts this last week! I gave myself and early Christmas present that day! It was such a help having a towel for each hand hanging right at my sides when I need one. In no time, the items were baked, the dishwasher running and and I took off my Kitchen Boa Scarf  to enjoy a cup of coffee with a fresh-from-the-oven cookie.  cookie after sew easy kitchen boa I watched this video on making this easy to sew Kitchen Boa Scarf. You can watch it HERE. I altered the fabric measurement which gave me ability to put a tuck in any dishtowel when I sewed it to the fabric. I cut my fabric 12″ x WOF (width of fabric) making the width of all my Kitchen Boa Scarfs uniform. I pinned the center of the dishtowel to the center of the 12″ width of fabric. The sides of the towel were pinned to the corners of the cotton fabric.

I added a pleat to the center of the towel where the fabric met in the center. I pinned and sewed the towel to the cotton fabric, starting at one end and finishing at the other end.

The cookies and casserole

I baked oatmeal raisin cookies the other day as a sweet treat this week for my husband and me. Since the oven was heated, I planned to bake a casserole for dinner.

I began with the cookies, gathering all the supplies, including an orange Halloween dishtowel, that I was always misplacing as I worked. I was becoming frustrated by my loss of time until I remembered the Kitchen Boa Scarves I had sewn for Christmas gifts! I gifted one to myself that day!

In no time the items were baked, the dishwasher loaded, and I wiped my hands dry on my Kitchen Boa Scarf to sit with a cup of coffee and enjoy an oven-fresh cookie.
