Handle holder for Falcon coffee pot
My Falcon enamel collection started with 2 cups but a few years later almost all my plates and bowls have been replaced by the iconic blue rimmed kitchenware. I love how I can use the enamel plates, pie dishes and pans both inside and outdoors and it makes all my bakes and dishes just look so stylish!
The enamel coffee pot is one of the key pieces on my kitchen shelf and it pops up in a lot of my book and website shoots :) The only problem with the enamel is that if the pot has been filled with a hot liquid sometimes the handle gets rather warm. So I thought I should make it it's own little cuff, a leather handle holder. Have a look at the tutorial below.
I love the look of the tan leather against the shiny white pot. If you make sure you don't get the handle wet when you wash the coffee pot it will last you a long time too. Slightly tempted to also make a version in the thick grey felt as I think that will give the coffee pot a lovely nordic look.
Do you love the Falcon range as much as I do? I think I like it so much as it sort of feels like you are camping indoors when you eat your diner from the enamel plates :D
I think it's common sense but please don't put your coffee pot in the oven when its handle wears the leather cuff.
