To Hot to Handle!

I love Valentine’s Day and being from a great Cooking state (Louisiana) food and love go hand and hand.

So for my project I decided to give my love some jazzed up goodies for his cooking pleasure! He loves to cook and I am very grateful. So I was totally up for this project.

Hot Love Baby!!!


This is a quick and easy no sew project! You can sew if you like but I know how busy many are today!


Hand Mitt and Pot Holders from DollarTree!!!

I purchased the pot holders from DollarTree for just 2.00 WOW! I had the dotted Fat Quarter hanging around.  I quickly fused the Heat ‘N Bond to the back of the fabric and placed in my eCraft for quick cutting. I selected the heart design and was able to double cut it so I would have a heart with a hole in the middle for my design. I also used a free SVG from SVGcuts for my trim piece. I love the khaki and red contrast.I did do my stamping before I ironed the pieces on my holders. I stamped with fabric markers so that it would stay during washing. I even colored them it was so relaxing. I took the trim piece and slide it under the edge of the bias on the mitt. I ironed all on very fast. Now you could have stitched around all of this but I like the look that I have.

I hope that you enjoy my quickie project. It can be used for so much more! Hey we are only limited by our imagination! Get out there and love what you do! Wait till you see what I got you for Valentines’ Day next week!!!
