Pie Menu

Hello Friends!

I stitched up this Pie Menu pattern a while ago and knew exactly how I wanted it finished, but didn't have all of the parts in order to execute my plan. And then I found this perfectly sized rolling pin and it all came together!

First I mounted the stitched piece to some red and white gingham to match the tablecloth in the pattern. The secret to this was making sure the gingham was the correct size to be able to add a hanger that fits the dimensions of the rolling pin. It doesn't seem like it'd be that hard, but I spent more than enough time (and bad words) getting it right.

The rolling pin was originally oak-stained with bright red handles. I wanted to tone it down a bit, so I whitewashed the rolling pin itself, and then roughed up the handles to make them look a little vintage. I added a sawtooth hanger to the back of the rolling pin so that it can be hung. Then I just have to fit the loops around the rolling pin and it hangs nicely. Just love it!


Pattern: Pie Menu
Designer: Country Cottage Needleworks
