Each day of the hop features approximately 30 gift projects and you can “hop” from one blog to another to check them all out.
Today Sabrina Alery shares how to make an adorable recipe book gift set for the foodie in your life:
Kitchen gifts such as this hand stamped oven mitt are always useful and you can help them get started by tucking in a few tried and true recipes into a customized recipe book made from a dollar store photo album.
Stamping on solid colored fabrics is an economical way to stretch your holiday budget and is also so very fun! I used a great stamp set from Neat and Tangled (Merry and Bright) as well as our Simple Dots Jumbo Rollagraph® stamp wheel and Crooked Art Screen® to apply my own patterns to the fabric.
Use our line of Crafter’s® Inks for stamping on the fabric to make the color both permanent and waterproof. All you need to do is set the color for about 30 seconds with an iron after stamping.
This fun and free oven mitt sewing pattern was found here on Prudent Baby. You can download it or do an internet search for “oven mitt pattern” to find a plethora of other oven mitts styles. I added a bit of extra color by piecing together several hexagons cut with the Fabi® Sizzix Bigz 2″ Hexagon die. Hexagons are infamous for being difficult, but the die made adding this trendy pattern so much quicker!
Using the same stamps from Neat and Tangled and some shades of Colorbox® Pigment inks, I stamped a few designs onto paper to slip into the page protectors. Stick everything down using fabulous adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives. The EZ-Dots® tape roller is a favorite and I was delighted to find out how easy the Mounting Squares are to use for adhering directly onto the page protectors.
