Self Edges Cookie Mat Ideas Inspiration

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!
