What is it?

Now that Christmas is over, I can share photos of gifts that I made. Can you guess what this is? This is what it looks like flattened.

Here's another view. I gave it to my friend Linda.

This is the one I gave my daughter. She had no clue what it was!

Okay, it's a pie carrier. I used the cute pattern in the latest Stitch Magazine, except that I changed it a little. I didn't use bias tape as they had suggested, and I used shoe laces instead of twill tape, their suggestion. I dyed the shoelaces green for the green one, because I thought it would look better than the plain white. It's Color Silk, the same stuff I have used on silk and wool.

Honest, I am still making quilts. "Sweet Dreamy Dreams" is almost ready to machine quilt. My head is spinning with ideas for two more, due in March. But I can't show any of these for a while, sorry.

These are very cool! Love the colors. Who would have thought? I love the idea of a fabric pie cover. Happy new year to you!

Thanks, Jamie. I want to make my own now. Maybe it will inspire me to actually bake a pie, after many years of not.
