Lid covers (chefs pads etc etc!) for use with Aga range cookers

They are here, finally! It has been something of a rollercoaster getting these made; our first foray into proper manufacturing. We have spent a long time getting every aspect right, including our famous fabric competition that almost went viral on Facebook! If there is one thing I know it is Aga range cookers so I combined my experiences with long chats to my customers while re-enamelling their cookers to create the 'perfect' chef pad lid cover. I hope you'll agree!

Lets have a look at the designs and some of the key features that make my hob covers the bees knees!

Above is our Aga range cooker hob cover with black labrador pattern. The fabrics we have used are top notch all round. The base is thick tough terry towelling, the edging is lovely cream cotton and the patterned fabrics are thick pure cotton upholstery fabrics for a real luxury feel.

The undersides of the lid covers is the lovely cream terry towelling shown above. It's soft and gorgeous!

We have all our fabrics and insulation machine cut into circles before hand making them from that point. In testing we learned that hand cutting the materials is just not possible if you want a perfect circle; no one is that good with the scissors!
