New! Coiled Mats!
You could stay I've become addicted. Once you make one of these coiled mats, you'll want to make another, and another, and well, you get the idea.
So I've been digging into my scrap bin and slicing up found fabrics, then wrapping and stitching, and wrapping and stitching some more. They are a wonderful way to use up lots of scraps and even the ugly pile. Yes, even the uglies look great when they are used in this way.
They are so much fun, and each one I make is my new favourite! Opinion is mixed in my household as to which looks better--even colour tones throughout, or rainbow splashes of bright colour. What do you think?
I've made a few for my PrairieThreads Etsy shop and I even made one for a gift using the selvage edges of fabric. If you look close in the photo below, you can see the colour dots and writing from the selvage edges.
You can use them under a hot dish, as a mug rug, with a flower arrangement, under a plant, for teacher or hostess gifts, as a hat (my daughter's idea!) and much more!
