Kitchen Linen Challenge

Sew Mama Sew is hosting a Kitchen Linens challenge given to a few sewists by Spoonflower. I was one of the lucky 6 people chosen to participate!

I had to choose 2 different fabrics to use for my kitchen project. Most of you know Spoonflower for being a great place to design your own fabric, but they also have fabric from individual designers that you can purchase. Let me tell you, putting the words “Kitchen” into the search brought up so many fabrics my head was spinning. SO many fabulous choices. It took a while to narrow it down.

As I was browsing the selection, I came across this cookie print (and if you know me, you know I LOVE food fabric) and it hit me…

COOKIES AND MILK!

I searched for milk themed fabrics and fell in love with this retro milk bottle print. And a beautiful match was made.

I decided to do 2 different types of oven mitts. The one in the photo above was made by tracing one that we already have.

For the other, I followed a tutorial (loosely) by Miss Mary Sewing Classes. I actually winged the shape, and top stitched (and she didn’t), but the idea is the same. There is a liner and Insul-Bright (*affiliate link*) in each one to make them heat resistant.

Something about the combination of the cookies and milk theme, and that retro fabric makes me think of a classic Vintage housewife a la Lucille Ball.

*BTW: That apron was my Mom’s and I wore it my High School production of Bye-Bye Birdie when I played Mrs. Macafee (about about 25 years ago-yikes!). Now my oldest is wearing it.

There you go! As simple as, well…cookies and milk.

It was hard to restrain herself from eating these until the end.

  1. Love it all!! Great photo shoot too! Why am I suddenly craving sweets??!! Lol the only thing missing is the recipe for those yummy looking cookies!!

  2. That polka-dot apron is beyond retro – it has stood the test of time! I just <3 it so much! My favorite are the pac-man (Ms. Pac-man?) mittens. Great for a mom with a young kid – first it's a potholder, then it's a puppet!
