Handmade Gifts for the Kitchen (using Silhouette Cameo)

Ever since I got the Silhouette Cameo, I have been using it for different gift ideas. The Cameo definitely makes your life much easier. It adds a personal touch, without being super time-consuming. I made these several weeks ago for Mother's Day gifts, but am now just getting around to posting about it.

First, I made a potholder using this pattern here. I took inspiration from the fabric for the images used with my Cameo.

Instead of free-motion quilting like the one in the pattern, I sewed simple lines to quilt the layers together.

This is a cute potholder from Target. I cut out the image onto heat transfer material and then ironed it on.

The kitchen towel is from Walmart (see here). For this I made a stencil with Freezer Paper (see here for tutorial) and then used fabric paint.

Here is another towel I made using Freezer paper stencil and fabric paint. If you're wondering what those strange symbols are below the heart, that says "grandmother" in Korean.

Note: If you own a Silhouette and see images here that you would like to use, please email me and I would love to share the files with you. :)

Now just brainstorming what to make for Father's Day. Any good ideas?
