Project #70 – Tesselation Placemat
Tonight, instead of going out, Clark and I sat in bed and watched So I Married An Axe Murder while eating Girl Scout cookies. I like keeping my hands busy while I’m in front of the TV; I have a hard time just sitting and focusing sometimes and it’s nice to have something extra that keeps me completely involved. I used one of my tessellations from Wednesday to make a patterned placemat/trivet for the dining room table.
I traced my bird tessellation piece to form a pattern on a piece of stiffened felt and cut out each piece, one-by-one. Tessellations are great because there isn’t a lot of waste. I glued each to a contrasting color and trimmed the edges when finished.
I’m a little worried that it will melt if I place a hot dish on top of it. I’ll have to test it out to make sure there won’t be a big mess.
