Free Kitchen Accessory Patterns
Cotton fabrics are the fabric of choice for most kitchen accessories. Amy Butler cotton prints make beautiful aprons, placemats, potholders, and so on. Gingham is a classic kitchen fabric. It makes neat tablecloths, placemats, curtains, aprons, and more.
I enjoy free sewing patterns and I know our readers do too. These free kitchen accessory patterns use cotton fabrics and would look great in the latest prints:

Here is a great pattern for an insulator to carry your casseroles in: http://sewing.about.com/od/freeprojects/ss/fabricdish.htm
The dish insulator is made with cotton fabrics. The pattern calls for using fusible web to fuse the heavy interfacing in place, but this step seems redundant. A good, stiff heavy interfacing or stabilizer such as Pellon Wonder Under fusible stabilizershould do the trick in my opinion without the need for two products.
