Casserole Cozy

I havn't blogged on my sewing blog for a while and here's a picture to show you why.  I have actually been sewing!  WooHoo!!

I am sorry to be a traitor to that saying that women are talented multi taskers but I can't quite operate a sewing machine with one hand and type on the computer with the other!  lol.  With the limited spare time I have lately I have chosen to sew.

Red spotty casserole cozy made using the tutorial from Dixie Doodles.  A very easy tutorial to follow. 

Here is a shot of the casserole cozy flat.  Just in case someone wants to see it flat! lol

A little look at the applique.  Technique used is "freestyle".  It's an excellent applique technique for slackers like me!! :)

I have also been making some lavender sachets.  I won't show them until they are 100% finished.  They are just waiting for the lavender I nicked from my brothers garden to dry so they can be filled and then closed.   They are extremely pretty and I can't wait to show them!

Good Morning!
This is so cute! You did such a nice job...especially on the applique! I have a pattern for a square casserole holder...but hadn't seen the round one...I love it! You have inspired me to try one!
Have a blessed day,

The freestyle applique is very lovely. I'm very into applique right now. But for me, I find freestyle applique requires far more discipline than a structured one. Strange right?

Oh Kylie, that casserole cozy is just too cute, and so very useful, too! I love it! I just might have to go grab that tutorial and make some for gifts!!! And I can't wait to see your lavender sachets! :o)
