Flower Power

It's Shameless Commerce Tuesday, and this week I am featuring some newly-listed floral oven mitts.
I recently received a request from Candice McIntosh, the new owner of The Window Box floral and gift shop in Wahoo, Nebraska, for flower-themed oven mitts and table runners.  I delivered 18 items to her sunny little store on Monday.  But I kept a few for my Etsy shop, Pasque Flower Creations, as well.


The pretty pink mitt above was made using LillyBelle fabrics designed by Bari J for Art Gallery Fabrics.  I love Art Gallery Fabrics, not only for their terrific designs, but also because their cottons have an almost silky feel -- like high thread count sheets.  The lining is Oval Elements, also by Art Gallery Fabrics.  I purchased these pretty fabrics at one of my new favorite online fabric shops, Glam Fabrics.   (The scraps were used for my BBA June Challenge project.)


On a brighter note, this mitt features a bold multi-color floral print designed by MoMo for Moda Fabrics.  I used a white on yellow polka dot from Riley Blake for the lining, binding and hanging loop.


I love Amy Butler's Tumbled Roses fabric from her Love collection, but that fabric is out of print and hard to find.  I had offered these mitts about a year ago, but sold out.  When I received Candice's request for floral mitts, I set out to see if I could find some more of this fabric -- and I did!  I used SunSpots, also by Amy Butler, for the lining.


And last, but not least, is this pretty red floral from the Silvia's Garden collection by Silvia Vassileva Studio for P&B Textiles.  The colors -- wine red, olive green, teal, and earth tones remind me of Tuscany.  I've never actually been to Tuscany---or anywhere off the North American continent for that matter. But I loved Frances Mayes' book, Bella Tuscany.

So,  buongiorno!

    2. Glad you like them too. I have a super fun and quick Christmas craft using polka dots coming up on my Christmas in July Blog Theme. It's way different than the stitching you and I are used to, but I think you'll love it!
