Something New

~*~
I love to make my game night coasters and applique, so for ages I've wanted to try the pattern out with fabric.
~*~

 ~*~
I finally got around to doing it the other night, and I just couldn't stop!  I made these four hotpads while watching a movie on TV.
~*~
 ~*~
Each of these is made from a standard size pillowcase.  They measure about 7" across and are about a half inch thick.

I like that they provide good table protection, yet they are flexible and kind of dainty looking.  They are machine wash and dry, too.  I should have these up in sosorosey before the day is over.  $10 each makes them an easy choice for a hostess gift, and as always, custom orders are welcome!

What is next on your list of crafts to try or things to make?

Thank you, Shari! I am fortunate to live in an area with amazing secondhand shops. I live within 20 minutes of 8 different ones, and I stop at most of them at least once a week. Pillowcases are usually 69 or 99 cents- less on sale day :)

Wow Jennie, these are so pretty!!
I was only asking on the hug the other day if anyone had any new lines coming our in their shops for the New Year!

I can't believe your pillowcases are just 69-99cents!! Over here in the secondhand shops they are £1-£3each! Duvet covers are £4-£10 each and flat sheets are £3-£7.

Have a lovely Sunday Jennie, and take care.
xxOOxx
