Here's a practical and fun sewing idea that plows through scraps in minutes! So fast! Mousepads!
|Very different mousepads!|
Quilty on QNN TV, only I stacked 9 blocks and sliced and shuffled. I arranged the blocks in a lattice arrangement, inspired by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson!
Here are the men enjoying the quilt at story time.
|Here they are, side by side on my ironing board!|
Use paper-backed fusible web to attach it to a roll of thin cork with an iron (no steam!), and simply cut rounded corners and topstitched around the whole project (yes, your sewing machine can make it through cork, at least mine did!) My only worry about this project is that the patchwork mousepad might make for bumpy mouse movement...in that case, it may just be a trivet! The cork should protect his table from, say a hot pot of chili. Hope everyone's Christmas gift making is going smoothly!
