Last week I made this table topper or trivet. I cut the diamond shapes from woolen sweaters that I had felted in the washing machine and stitched them together using a small zig zag. This pattern is known among quilters as ‘baby blocks’ – very effective, isn’t it?
Yesterday I made a smaller version that is now for sale in my Etsy shop. Here is a detail:
The back is made from a piece of felt from another sweater:
It would look great under a vase or a bowl – a perfect house-warming gift. It can also be used as a mouse pad.
I have a lot of felt left, so am going to try and make some more ‘trivets’ (strange word…). There are some more quilt blocks that I think would look very good in felt!
Beautiful . . . and SUCH a clever design!
Oooh, I love that! You really managed to get the 3D effect spot on!
