60-Minute Gift: Bake ‘n’ Fry Dividers


The holiday season is approaching and now is the time to start sewing and making gifts for friends and families. Today I will be sharing a quick project which can be made in under an hour to brighten up your kitchen drawers and protect your non stick cooking surfaces.


1 x Summerville Layer Cake
1 yd Bella solid snow 9900-11
1 yd Flannel
Light weight iron on pellon
Fusible web


Baking Tray Liners ( 30 mins )

  • Measure the baking tray. Record the measurement. For the purpose of this tutorial I will be making a liner to suit a 10″ x 15″ base. If you have have a smaller or larger tray, add 1/2″ to the measured length and width.

  • From the solid cut 12 x 1 1/2″ strips
  • From the print cut 12 x 1 1/2″ strips

  • Alternate the solid and print and sew strips together
  • Finished block is 8 1/2″ x 10″
  • Make 3 blocks

  • Cut each block twice on the diagonal

  • Sew 2 triangles together to make a half square triangle (HST). Repeat with remaining triangles.
  • Square each HST to 5 1/2″

  • Arrange in 2 rows of 3 blocks each
  • Sew together
  • Finished top measures 10 1/2″ x 15 1/2″

  • From the solid cut 1 – 10 1/2″ x 15 1/2″ piece
  • From the iron on pellon cut 1 – 10 1/2″ x 15 1/2″ piece
  • Press the pellon to the wrong side of the solid piece
  • Place the solid and top piece right sides together. Pellon will be on the outside.
  • Sew 1/4″ from edge leaving a 4″ gap at the top for turning.
  • Trim the corners and turn out. Use a stiletto or pointed object to push out seams and corners.
  • Fold under opening 1/4″ and top stitch 1/8″ around edge of liner.

  • Trace the letters ‘BAKE’ (these can be found in the Printer Friendly file at the bottom of this post) onto the dull side of the fusible webbing
  • Cut 1/8″ away from the pencil line and press to back of selected print.
  • Cut on pencil line and peel of paper backing
  • Position and press onto front of liner
  • Using a straight stitch or blanket stitch machine stitch the appliqué.


Hint: These liners are meant to be scrappy in nature. There are unlimited block designs and scrappy settings that could be used as long as the unfinished top is 1/2″ longer and wider than the base of the tray.

Frying Pans ( 30 mins)

  •  Measure the diameter of the pan including the sides.  Record the measurement.
  • Cut strips from the Layer Cake and make a piece measuring 10″ x 48″
  • Using a 60 degree triangle ruler or the 60 degree marking on your ruler, cut 6 triangles from the strip
  • Sew 3 triangles together. Repeat.

  • Join the two rows together.

  • Cut a circle ( using a compass / pencil and string / large plate ) 1″ larger than the diameter, including sides, of your pan. For example, my pan measured 15 1/2″ from side to side. I would cut a circle with diameter of 16 1/2″
N.B The hexagon made from the 6 triangles can accommodate a circle up to 17″ in diameter.

  •  From the flannel cut a circle the same size as the top

  • Place the flannel and top piece wrong sides together.
  • Sew 1/4″ from edge using a shorter stitch
  • Using pinking shears, cut around edge 1/8″ away from stitching.
N.B these liners do not require pellon
Two options for appliqué 

  • Cut a piece 6″ x 10″ from print
  • Stitch to centre of liner
  • Trace the letters ‘FRY’ ( these can be found in the PDF format for this project ) onto the dull side of the fusible webbing
  • Cut 1/8″ away from the pencil line and press to back of selected print.
  • Cut on pencil line and peel of paper backing
  • Position and press onto 6″ x 10″ piece
  • Using a straight stitch or blanket stitch machine stitch the appliqué.

  • Cut a 5 1/2″ circle from layer cake
  • Stitch to centre of liner
  • Trace the letters ‘FRY’ ( these can be found in the PDF format for this project ) onto the dull side of the fusible webbing
  • Cut 1/8″ away from the pencil line and press to back of selected print.
  • Cut on pencil line and peel of paper backing
  • Position and press onto liner centre
  • Using a straight stitch or blanket stitch machine stitch the appliqué.
