Another part order completed. These are fabric pan lid steamers. Where I come from we eat rice nearly everyday.
The bottom has batting.
The rice is parboiled, drained and then put back in the pan with a little oil and water in the bottom. The pan lid is put into one of these steamers and placed on the pan.While the rice cooks the steam collects in the fabric steamer so the water doesn't drip back into the rice.
These are fancy ones for the bride to be. I had never made any before so before making these I made one for myself as a test run. Good job I did too as the elastic I used went hard with the heat. I bought some different elastic, tried it again and it was fine so I was able to finish these. Good job I did a test run. It never occurred to me the elastic would stiffen.
I had some problems with my internet today so it's late now to make a start on the sew along bag being held by Bethany at Sweet Bee Buzzings but will make a start tomorrow.
