Kitchen Stitches Book Blog Hop

This week I got to review and sew along with Kitchen Stitches by Martingale.

Brighten your kitchen and dining area with delightful projects from a host of talented designers. For sewists of all skill levels, this value-packed volume offers an extraordinary variety of styles, including quilted, appliquéd, and embroidered designs.

The variety is great! I am pretty sure there is something for your kitchen in there.   They range from super beginner sewing projects, to a little more complicated– like the table runner.  The project that I was eyeing is the crock pot cooker carrier {say that three times fast!}.

My carrier has bit the dust. The wipeable fabric is all crinkly, and is ready to split.  The zipper on the side doesn’t work, nor the zipper along the top.  This book came right in time with what I need!

I have picked out my fabric and am ready to set out on sewing it up.  There is a circular base, but the book is great at showing you exactly what you need to do for it, making it not too hard to sew.


This project does require the insulbright batting and luckily I have some that is already layered and quilted. See the little bits of metal?


I really think that this might become my go to book for wedding showers or Christmas gifts, or friend presents…..  Sew up a few of these in a day and then set aside for when you need them.  Or, find out the colors of their kitchen and match them up!  Either way, there are 17 designs to choose from– I don’t think you could go wrong!


They are quick to sew, require minimal supplies and will let the recipient know how much you care.  I know that I will be stitching up a bunch to tuck away for the perfect gift!

Pick up your book here over at Martingale Books.

This book is jam-packed with such talented designers and amazing projects.  Just take a peak at the line up!
