Easy to Sew Projects for the Kitchen

Hot pad sewn like piece of blueberry pieI’ve enjoyed more kitchen time this past year while cooking and baking new recipes while I stayed home and safe during the pandemic and perhaps you have as well. I knew it was time to make some easy-sew kitchen projects when I saw the hot pads I was using were not up to par. And on top of that, I was continually misplacing my dishtowel between workstations!

I love when the stars align and I can accomplish two tasks at one time, which happened when Carla of Creatin’ In the Sticks invited bloggers to join her Kitchen Stitchin’ blog hop. I signed up to post a blog about two items I sewed that answered my kitchen cooking needs. Thank you, Carla!

A free paper piecing pattern for the cutest berry pie hot pad came in an email one day. Lindsay Conner designed the pattern which is found on the Baby Lock website HERE.

I made his hot pad is for ME! but I am going to make some as gifts because they are just so-so cute!

I make hot pads to sell at a local consignment shop and I quilt the layers on my home sewing machineKitchen Scarf (or Kitchen Boa) with dishtowels for both hands and bind them like little quilts. My free-motion quilting skills have improved so much by making potholders that I would recommend making smaller items like these to help anyone learn free-motion quilting skills.

AND, I found a video showing how to sew a “kitchen scarf” which was the solution for my misplaced dishtowel! They are quick and easy to make. I like mine very much and plan on making a summery one very soon. You can find many videos online showing how to make one with no two styles being alike.
