Our family has a favorite recipe for romaine dressing which was developed by our beloved Grandma Jean.  We serve this often at family gatherings, but with all the commotion we tend to forget to write down the recipe.    Since Grandma Jean passed prior to Christmas, not long after marking her 90th birthday, I thought this would be a fitting tribute to her and her culinary skills.  


PS The PhotoFabric material pictured is fully capable to being washed after completion.   These are working potholders, not purely decorative.  

Step 1: Materials Needed:




Coordinating seam binding

Insulbright (at fabric stores)

PhotoFabric (at fabric stores)

Sewing  tools:  Scissors, Pins, Needles, Ruler, Sewing machine, chalk or erasable air pen, disappearing ink or tailor’s chalk

Favorite Recipe, Photos if desired

So Creative, Grandma Jean would be proud.

It is an awesome idea. <br>
