This is the first of what is likely to be many ninja-ed gifts this year. We had a christmas party at work with an optional under-10-dollar gift exchange. I’m not really sure how much these cost to make, but if you count the fact that I charge out my time at a min of 50$ an hour, I think they’re worth about 200-300$ 😀 To be honest, I first decided to make them round because I wanted to use bias taping and have not yet mastered the art of corners. :S
I’m not sure why my phone camera is being so difficult… I might have to start using a real camera…
Do you recognize the fabric? When I bought fabric for the Christmas swap I think I bought a 1/2m of each so that I’d have some extra for christmas-y type things, that this is definitely one of those things.
These babies are insulated with insulbright and triple-duty. First they have the obvious use being a place on which to set a hot pot. Second, they have nice little pockets so when you want to grab a pot, the tops and bottoms of your fingers are covered. Guess who always burns themselves by touching the outside of the stove?
Third, they can store a covered dish either for transport or just for keeping warm. In three different sizes, you could use one for each purpose!
