Giving from the heart is so important these days, giving something homemade to friends, family and your community makes giving extra special. With social media making such an enormous impact in our lives these days it is not difficult to be connected yet feel far away from everyone. A warm batch of cookies says love. Why not take it a step further and dress them up in these clever fabric loaf pans? It is really ‘no-sew’ simple when using Eileen Hull’s newest die – loaf pan #659873 from Sizzix.
Supplies for baking wraps:
Fabric, Stiffen – double sided fusible rigid backing, #659873 loaf pan die, Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine, oly-fun* , basic cutting tools, glue gun or fabric glue dots, parchment paper (optional)
Place fabric on either side of the Stiffen – double faced fusible rigid backing and press. Read the direction’s provided by the manufacturer to assure a perfect result.
Following the directions provided by Sizzix, place the fused fabric and die onto the cutting plates and run through the Sizzix machine.
You will notice that you have options as to how to fold the cut out. Choose the desired result and attach sides of the loaf pans using either a glue gun or glue dots.
In the photo above the Baking Wraps were made with fabric on either side of the fusible center. You may want to line the finished wraps with parchment paper to absorb any baking grease. To do this simply run a number of layers of parchment paper through the die cut machine at one time (one layer of parchment paper is sometimes to thin for a good result) and then form the liners. Place them inside the wraps before filling with cookies or other baked items.
Another fantastic option is to use oly-fun*. With the wide range of colors and the fun texture of the fabric it works wonderfully as a liner. Fuse fabric to one side of the Stiffen and oly-fun to the opposite side. Cut and form the Baking Wraps as described above. When pressing oly*fun: Set your iron to the silk setting and always use a pressing cloth. Never touch a hot iron directly to oly*fun™
