Today we got to celebrate my brother's upcoming wedding to Kara with an awesome shower thrown by my aunts. Since I left my camera on the table next to something else I was supposed to bring, pictures of the actual shower will have to wait until my cousin posts a few. But I couldn't wait to show off Kara's gift.
My go-to wedding shower gift is a set of Pyrex pans. I don't care if most brides don't have them on their registry, because they should. I use my Pyrex pan several times each week and love that it has a lid making it easy to transport. I love to etch the pans with the couple's last name (see a more detailed post on that here). I etched her pans on the side with "hoerr" and a flower and then did cute little flags on the bottom.
But then I went all Pinterest crazy. One night while I was making birthday party lists in my head, lying in bed, I had the urge to check Pinterest for something else to add to Kara's gift. And I found this (and this) tutorial for a casserole dish cover. Can you say perfect! It was a little intimidating as I'd never sewn with insulation material or the belting. But it turned out adorable, if I don't say so myself. It folds up on itself and then insulation material keeps your dish warm.
I made an oven mitt to go along and I added spatulas and towels that she registered for to complete the gift. Wasn't that fabric a perfect match to her towels. Swoon.
Long live the pot luck!
