My nephew is getting married next September. These kids are just starting out so they've got no household items at all. I wanted to do something special for their shower, so I'm making things for a "kitchen trousseau." So far I have:<br>
--2 double-thick crocheted potholders<br>
--2 crocheted cotton dish cloths<br>
--2 embroidered hand towels<br><br>
Any other ideas? I'd love to do 4 napkins/placemats but I don't have any hot leads on a cool placemat pattern. I thought about going to the ceramics shop and making them a large bowl for salads or other dishes and then putting everything I've made into the bowl like a gift basket.<br><br>
I've looked around my kitchen a zillion times and I can't seem to come up with anything else. Please help!!! Thanks!!

Well, it's not super-ultra-cool placement pattern,. but this one is quite nice: <a href="http://www.sugarncream.com/pattern.php?PID=135" target="_blank">http://www.sugarncream.com/pattern.php?PID=135</a> you need to sign up, but I have not noticed an increase in spam from it.<br>
That is all i can think of right now.

I just made a couple of <a href="http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=1184" target="_blank">these crocheted bags</a>. I think they're supposed to be good to store potatoes and onions in, as well as for reusable grocery bags. I liked the pattern a lot and it was very easy, but next time i'll make the handles more like <a href="http://www.craftown.com/crochet/pat1.htm" target="_blank">this</a>.<br><br>

How about cookbks or recipe cards with your fave recipes?<br>
Cookie cutters with cookie mix? I got this for a wedding present and thought it was fun-after 13 yrs I still have the cookie cutters.<br>
I like the ceramic bowl idea-how about coffee mugs with coffee too?<br>
How about lots of the little gadgets that people always need: wine bottle opener, nut cracker, different sizes of spatulas/spoons, pepper grinder, vegetable peeler....<br>
Have fun<br>
