These went with the casserole carrier. The pattern idea again from Embroidery Library projects, although I did not complete in the hoop, and used bias binding instead.

Very nice, and a good comanion to the carrier. I have the pattern, but just did not ever do it. Guess I need to now that I have seen them done. Well done.

Forgive this question if it is silly, I am just getting into all of this. I have not done pot holders/stands before as I was afraid that the heat would melt the embroidery threads. Did you use cotton thread? Or are the others OK?

jasanne by jasanne 09 Jun 2008

No questions are ever silly, that is how we all learn.
I've used poly and rayon threads on these, but the design is on the back side, not the side you hold the pot with. I used ironing board fabric lined with insulbrite and cotton batting for the side that you put to the heat. If you have a look at the projects at embroidery library I started there, but modified it a bit as my machine had a disagreement with me about stitching it out as an in-the-hoop item, probably because I tried to rezize it ;)

I just hope they get worn out, not just looked at ;) When we sorted my husbands granmothers estate there was so many nice things packed in her linen cupboards that she had never used, while what she did use was worn out and tatty. I learnt a lesson from that :(

Wow, they are lovely.

Thankyou, I was happy how they turned out, probably happier with the caserole carrier though.
