Do you also like self edges? At times those little notes printed on the self edge become stiff competition for the actual fabric design itself. At least I feel it does.
So I try to save some little bits of cute self edge. And then I sew them all together on a really, really thick layer of batting backed with a colorful dotted fabric. Round of the edges, put some bright dotted bias around it and another cookie mat is born. Or potholder… as you wish.
I use scrap bits of bias. Leftovers from larger projects. I guess I need to make another one with the red, dotted bias. Then the set will really be complete!
