Let's get a jump start on Christmas gifts 2010
I love using fabric trivets during the holidays.
I made this one using the 2 inch Mylar hexagon templates from Joann's fabrics but they can as easily be paper pieced.
Once I had the amount I was comfortable with, I added the insulite and backing and attached the hexagons on the sewing machine with a blanket stitch.I believe I used 61 hexies here. Of course you can use up your stash or make out of brand new fabric. I know everyone in blog land has been in saving money mode so these would be great. I also used some leftover Christmas binding I had.
These would make great Christmas gifts as a set or if you are up for the challenge make one for every month.
I would like to make a couple to gift my daughter and maybe a few harvest ones.
