I often make my own bread - the bread machine does the hard work. I tend to use it on dough setting so I can shape and bake the loaf myself. If I bake the loaf in the evening, I usually wrap a clean dish towel around the bread before I go to bed. So I thought, well why not just make a bread bag out of a nice dish towel. I chain stitched the letters onto it, and found a toggle from an old jacket and used a shoelace for a cord. Not the best photo I know , but my regular photographer (older daughter) is busy doing lots of studying for exams right now.
Now I'm thinking I need to make another bag for when the bread is nearly gone, I could embroider it with Not Quite So Fresh Bread! I think I'm only half kidding here! (The vintage bread knife was in a box of junk from my local auction - £1 for the box!)
I amire you. I often wish i could do bread making or be able to do creative stuff around the kitchen.ReplyDelete
My son, an ex-Royal Marine Commando, is an excellent cokk, as is his mother but I am at best okay.
Thanks CJ. I'm sure with the aid of a bread machine, you'd make great bread. It ain't rocket science.ReplyDelete
Never too late to do some experimenting in the kitchen!! Sometimes people don't know all the hidden talents they have. Maybe you are one of them?
ooh, yum, fresh bread, it is on our list of to do's this year, to get bread maker. Love your creations, especially love the butterfly brooch, it must have taken ages to make.ReplyDelete
What a good idea! There are some lovely teatowels about, I often cut them up and use them to make something else! xReplyDelete
That little darlin is just precious!...I loved your bread bag idea. That came out really well!ReplyDelete
I got a machine this past Christmas, (my second, and I never even opened my first from 10 years ago!) This machine was part of my son's gift, so I will be using it soon...I may have to make one of your bread bags! Hugs, Paulette :)
Paulette, I can't wait to see what you make with your machine!!
I quite often bake bread there's nothing quite like the smell of freshly cooked bread.ReplyDelete
I love the bag great idea.
Excellent idea! I think you are brilliant and will keep my eye on your blog. :-)ReplyDelete
A bread bag sounds like a good idea. How long does the bread keep in there?ReplyDelete
Shirley homemade bread keeps for a good few days in the bag. A bought loaf doesn't tend to keep so well.ReplyDelete
