We're moving! Look for Indygo Junction soon on Handicraft.com
One thing we tried to focus on when designing this year's patterns line was functionality. We wanted you to be able to really use your finished project - but we also made everything cute enough that it can be given as a gift. The Fruit Stitch Mitts are a great example of this. Functionality + Cuteness! IJ989-2T These mitts were inspired by vintage embroidery patterns that are often found made in tea towels and dish cloths at antique shows. We love the special quality that embroidery gives a project, but tried to modernize the look for today's customer. apple Although you can't see it in the image, these aren't pot holders, they are oven mitts. The hand slides in at the bottom of the fruit. Each side of the mitt is contains Insul-bright batting to protect your hands. The inside is fully lined. lemon To win a free copy of the Fruit Stitch Mitts pattern simple leave a comment below on your favorite kitchen tool. The contest will end at 12:00 on Friday, July 11th for US contestants only. Good Luck!

My favorite kitchen tool is a little chopper from the 40’s. It has the glass measuring cup base that holds a wooden disk so the blades don’t hit the glass and the top that you push down to chop. It reminds me of the old metal tops that you would push up and down to get them started. It is great for chopping nuts for cookies and breads.

My knife set — purchased before I was married 41 years ago — company used the best of the best and they will sharpen by simply sending knives back to them. My paring knife was so worn, that the company simply replaced it, at no charge, as all knives are guaranteed for life. Set includes a meat fork and spatula, which I use to frost cakes or put toppings on salads — would be lost without this set.
