Black & White Gifts for a Cook

Don’t forget about my giveaway which ends April 12. Go here to enter.

My son is teaching himself how to cook Asian dishes, influenced no doubt by his martial arts classes and our family’s general interest in the Japanese culture.

I’ve been working here and there over the last few months making things to send to him. There are knitted Ballband dishcloths and embellished hand towels for the inevitable clean-up associated with food preparation.

Not related at all to Japanese cuisine but may be useful for Brent is a baked potato bag I sewed. I made an instruction card to go with it. The fabric I used for the bag and to trim one of the dishtowels is a Kanji print found at Jo-Ann’s Fabrics.

Today I’m using one of Martha Stewart’s ideas to do a bit of painting on some items to accompany the other gift items I’m collecting and/or making. I’ll share those tomorrow.

What a fun Mom you are! My youngest will soon be setting up an apartment -- I'm thinking I should ask him his theme and get cracking? Thanks for the inspiration!

The ballband dishcloths look so striking in black and white. And love that kanji fabric. I always love your coordinated, thoughtful gifts.
