We love a good crawfish boil in my household. It really is one of the best ways to feed a crowd of hungry people. If you have never been to a crawfish boil, you might want to give it a try. We don't always boil just crawfish. We will throw shrimp and crabs in the pot also. Corn, Potatoes and mushrooms are added and they become infused with the seasonings added to the water. The pots are usually very tall and they get plenty hot. So in honor of the many crawfish boils I hope to be attending in my future, I am releasing my latest design. It is an In The Hoop Hot Stuff Crawfish Pad. The interior has Insul Bright which will help insulate from the cooking heat.
The design requires at least a 6x10 hoop and will finish to a 6x6 size. There are so many techniques in this design. You will do quilting, applique and chenille! If you are not sure what chenille is, take a look at the top right corner. The fluffy parts are actually layers of cotton fabric sewn in the hoop, trimmed and then roughed up so it gets softer and softer every time you launder it. I used all of the colors that are familiar to Louisiana fans also. This hot pad would be a welcome hostess gift if you are attending any party or gathering.
Check out the Hot Stuff Crawfish Pad in my store here. I also have a You Tube video that will show you all of the sew out steps below. Get yourself a cool drink and enjoy the show. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work!
