Hi everybody! My thumb is healed and I’m back to sewing. This is just a quick update to let you see what I’ve been working on. These snowflake/star rag quilt trivets are adorable and so much fun to make. I’ve never used osnaburg fabric which is a slightly heavier muslin type fabric. It feels kind of stiff when you are sewing it, but after it’s washed it softens up beautifully. And, oh my goodness, it rags up more than any other fabric I’ve used. The stars are approx. 13″-14″ wide. Nice size for candles or anything you want to put on them. They look pretty on their own to decorate a holiday table, too.
Homespun seems to work really well with the osnaburg. I haven’t tried regular quilt fabric yet. I’d like to be able to offer other fabrics besides homespun, so I’ll be trying some pretty Christmas fabrics soon. But, in the mean time, here are the three homespun stars I’ve made so far. They are available in my etsy shop, ready to ship. But, I can make any color homespun, so if you are interested in a different color just send me a convo and we can talk about a custom order.
