Pan Handle Holders- Kitchen Stitches

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Since Kitchen Stitches officially hit the stores last week, a few of the designers from the book thought it would be fun to mix things up.  We each decided to tackle another designers project in the book.  This was an easy one for me since a few weeks ago my daughter grabbed the hot pan handle. OUCH! Insert Kim’s pan handle holders to the rescue!

Pan Handle Holders


Pan Handle Holders Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I selected black & white prints, mixed with a splash of pink.

Here are a few snap shots of my project in the making.

Top Stitching Aurifil Thread | The Sewing Loft

I used this amazing variegated top stitching thread by Aurifil.  When using thicker thread needle size matters!!  For 12wt weight thread I used a 100/16 sized needle.  It worked like a charm with no hiccups along the way.  That is unless you don’t count my self threader not working.  For this one, I needed to manually thread my needle and since you know I love to stitch late at night, my glasses were a must!

To keep things fun, I played with the fabric and added on my favorite decorative stitches.  I love they way they look in this thicker weight thread!

Taking the time to attach my walking foot made allowed me to stitch through the thick layers effortlessly and the binding along the edge made finishing these babies a breeze!

Check out this video where Kim shares easy tips and tricks to make this project stitch like a dream.  Heck, I even had a front row seat to her taping session at quilt market.  She handled it like a pro!

These handle holders are just one of the many fun patterns included in the Kitchen Stitches book.  The book can be found at stores in your local area and on-line at
