New Christmas Fabrics


Here is my newest fabric, which I bought today! This was quite the event going with Kaelin but I eventually got these fabrics. Because of the time change, its already dark so the lighting is bad, the colors are multi shades of reds, greens, blues, creams, whites, gold and silver etching, the designs are stripes, polka dots, paisleys, old time Christmas ornaments and snowflakes. I just couldn't hold back my excitement to share the new fabrics I bought for new tablerunners, pot holders, kitchen towels, coasters, grabby guard sets, casserole grabby guards and fridge decor. I was thinking of making something totally new for my shop as well, but we will have to wait and see!

My little invention... Casserole Grabby Guards.







These are exclusive items sold only at my shop on Hyena and in my shop on Etsy. This is a special item since I came up with this product after trying to come up with an item that is not only an accessory for your kitchen but a "cant live without" item as well. This item has 2 different purposes. It one is a set of oven mitts attached by fabric, they are great for pulling out those hot casseroles, dutch ovens and even turkey roasters. The attaching fabric helps protect your forearms and stomach, places that hot plate might touch your skin. The other purpose is that it is a large hot pad for your precious kitchen table. I love to cook, especially large hearty meals that usually involve large cooking pots and such, but I like to serve my food buffet style. This item is perfect for that! I have personally made myself 1 and used if for awhile now! I have put it through every test and it has passed with flying colors. This item is machine washable and becomes more pliable per wash yet does not take from the protection this item promises to give.

The Casserole Grabby Guard is constructed of a cotton fabric, a layer of insul bright thermal protecting batting, a layer of 100% cotton batting and another layer of cotton fabric, the hand pockets are constructed the same way. Machined binded with a double stitch for high durability. Measure 22inches long by 9 inches wide.
This item was intended for Casseroles but came to realise that fit even large cooking pieces, such as a Turkey Roaster, perfect for Thanksgiving! This is a item that makes life in the kitchen so much easier!
