Taking hot food to the table always requires care with both the hands (risk of burns) and the surface where a pan or a dish will be placed.
So, to avoid these situations, we use the pan holder, which can be made of metal, wood, bamboo, fabric, in varying sizes and colors.
And to give the meal time a light and casual air, how about producing your own pot holder with a simple nail loom, strips of fabric and string?
This is the step-by-step of this post! Come on?
- 1 square nail loom 32 x 32 studs
- 0.50 m of printed gorgurinho fabric (cheetah or tricoline can also be used)
- 1 roll of string # 4 or 6
- 1 crochet hook # 4
- 1 batter or comb
- 1 needle for sacchar
- 1 square of approx. 26 x 26 cm acrylic blanket
- Sewing machine or needle and thread
Passage of the Barbante in the Loom of Nails
Open the end of the string.
Make a knot and put on the first nail, on top.
Go down with the wire to the corresponding nail, underneath.
Go through the nail and climb again.
Continue passing the string in a zig-zag motion through all the nails, until you reach the last.
Cut the thread and open the tip again, making a knot, as at the beginning.
Take the gorgurinho, and with the own loom serving as a shape, cut a square, approx. 32 x 32 cm.
With the rest of the fabric, cut into strips approximately 2 - 5 cm in the width direction.
Take the first strip and position it on the warp of the loom, as pictured, going over and under 2 wires.
Make sure it is facing the right side of the fabric.
Hold the ribbon straight, and pull gently until only one end is left at the beginning.
When you reach the opposite side, fold the ribbon and pass it through the nail.
Begin to pass the tape through the warp again, but now alternating the strides.
With a comb or beater, tighten the two strips, leaving them slightly wrinkled, but tightly together.
Continue the same movement described in the previous items until the strip ends.
Continuing the Tapestry on the Loom
For the continuity of the plot, it is necessary to amend another tape to the previous one, and thus, unite the ends of the tapes old and new.
Fold the two ends together and make a small cut in the center, depending on the photo.
Unfold the ribbons and position them as in the photo, with the holes approximately aligned.
Pass the opposite end of the new tape through the holes.
If it is not possible to go through both at the same time, first pass through the hole in the old tape from the bottom up.
Now pass the tip through the hole in the new ribbon, and pull until all the ribbon has passed through the two holes.
Pull the two old and new tapes carefully to opposite sides until a splice forms between them.
Continue the work by mending as many tapes as necessary.
When it reaches the last nails, the work is already well compacted and firm, and thus, it becomes difficult to pass the tapes.
At this point, use a spool needle to continue to the last nail.
To remove the work from the loom, it is first necessary to fix the four sides of the work, and with the crochet hook and the string, make a stitch in the chain, taking care to pick up each thread / fabric of each loop, and not the entire handle at a time.
Arriving at the starting point, cut the wire and thread it to the wrong side.
Remove the work from the loom carefully, so as not to damage the fabric, one handle at a time.
Get out of work
Pull the string straps together, placing one inside the other with the crochet hook.
When you reach the last, hide inside out. Do this for both sides.
Handle both fabric ends, the beginning and the end of the fabric, passing the tip to the stitch on the wrong side.
Position the wrong side up. Then position the acrylic blanket square on top, hitting the sides.
Now place the previously reserved fabric square over the acrylic blanket.
Bend the ends and adjust the size according to the part, hiding any ends of yarn.
The woven fabric loops should be free.
Secure the four sides with pins and sew.
