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?

Hi Jennie...I love them all....where do you find all your beautiful fabrics? my favorite is the gray and white!

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.
