18 September 2011
I'm pleased to report, not only have I completed a very belated wedding gift set for my bro and sister-in-law, but I also remembered to photograph it before I send it off to their home in a remote corner of the country (along with the best ever (in my experience) Australian cooking and gardening book).
The apron is from Purl Bee. So simple and quick. Will definitely be making another one of these for me. And perhaps a slightly smaller one for my budding kitchen apprentice (He chopped the beans for tonight's fried rice. And then wanted to play with them instead of letting me cook them).
The oven mitts are Sooz's Slack Arse Oven Mitts, which I made with one layer of that strange batting with perforated silver heat reflective lining, and one layer of wool wadding. I'll have to make another pair of these for me as there have been a couple of "connecting with flame" issues with my old pair.
And the tea towels were inspired by this Purl Bee tutorial, except I didn't have any cute trim so they are completely plain, but made in some very nice pure linen (as is most of the rest of the set) from Tessuti.
