Boy, was this a fun little project. Except for the Briar Rose center, I used only scraps for this...even the binding. Some of my scraps were very tiny and would have tossed otherwise. Big relish was getting upset that I was pulling from her tiny scrap bag...ooops!
I wanted to make two but mama got a new ipad mini yesterday and played with that instead of sewing! I was the biggest fan of Kindle for the longest time but recently realized that Kindle was not keeping up with the technology/apps (meaning no Bloglovin app yet!) and decided to go big or go home! Since there is a Kindle app I can still access all my books and magazine just the same. I would like to give a shout out to my sponsor, Mr. Relish! lol
I almost thought about making the trivet bigger and make 4 placemats. I even made printed out giant patterns and taped them together. Oh well, another day I suppose. But doesn't it make a cute mug rug? I doubt I will ever use it as a trivet. I don't want it to get slathered in food. That would make me sad.
I used two layers of batting (not sure why but glad I did because it's nice and stiff) and machine binded (I've asked this before but it's binded, right? or is it bounded?).
Thanks to all for leaving me good vibes last week but I still haven't won. This week, I feel it! lol
