Prim Pies
Wednesday, December 28, 2011



These little pies are so cute and decorative--easy to make also. They look great on a kitchen counter or in a cabinet. I'm sure there are all kinds of ways to do them, but this is how I did mine.

I hunted yard sales for old tin pie plates. I found several that were nice and rusty. You can use an old one and distress yourself w/paint and stain.

You need:
muslin
batting
stuffing
coffee and cinnamon mix for grunging
Thread
Needle

place a double layer of muslin on your table. Place the pie tin inverted on top.
trace a very light line around the rim of the plate. About two inches from the line make another slightly wavy line around the perimeter. This waviness makes it look like pie crust. Cut out. Place the muslin on top of the batting and cut out. Turn both pieces of muslin right sides together and stack on top of batting. Sew about a 1/2" seam around the edges. Slit ONE layer of the muslin and turn right side out. You will have the batting on the inside now. You can loosing stitch the slit if you would like ( I dont' bother) Hand stitch a "running stitch about 1/2" from the edge. This makes it look like the crust edge. Make up your coffee grunge mix and paint/grunge the muslin "crust". I bake mine right side up in the oven at 200*. Watch closely for burning. Grunge again if you would like. I like mine really dark and cinnamon-y LOL.

Take your pie plate and either fill with a TON of stuffing--you want it piled high enough to look like the plate is filled with pie. Place the pie crust on top of the plate and glue edges to the plate. Before you glue all the way around adjust stuffing and add more to get the look you like. I sprinkle mica or glass glitter on top to look like sugar and glue cherries or whatever I like to the top. I like to spray them with fragrance oil also. Then they can smell like the real thing!

That's it....Easy Peasy.

If you don't know how to make up the grunge mix let me know in a comment, and I will describe that for you also :)
