Subject: Looking for ideas again
I am looking for kitchen decor items. I already make the oven door dresses and bag sacs (plastic bag holders). I have the pattern for the crochet toppers for dish towels (don't knit)and the pattern for toppers made from the pot holders. Would love to have some new ideas. I have a couple of shows that are in country areas and have a lot of lady that love to cook.
Thanks in advance

What about the kitchen angel made with 2 dishcloths and a potholder for wings? I believe this is in the archives.

I loved the beaded recipe saver on this site, I think I will try and make this. The decoupaged plates have always been a great favourite on my craft table and even a sellout at times : )

I have also seen these used to hold unframed wallet size photos, they are really cute

Great ideas, ladies. Here are some more - sorry I don't have links, as they are just things I remember seeing before.
Oven mitts - crochet or made from quilted fabric
napkin rings - there are a lot of ideas out there
recipe cards - tied in a bundle with raffia, etc.
spice trivet - made from coiled, stuffed fabric & spices that smell wonderful when a heated pan is set on it
aprons - adult size or small ones that fit over dish soap
scrubbies - plenty of patterns to crochet, etc.
dish cloths - knitted or crochet
sandwich bag - reusuable but don't remember where I saw it
silverware holders - lots of patterns

I do sewing for other people and one year for Christmas I made the microwave potholders for them and they seemed to like them. My mom still has hers. I also quilted some regular potholders another year. pretty easy
