A very talented friend of mine has been posting weekly online Facebook concerts for everyone to enjoy and although it was a technical challenge it worked out so well, and it made a huge difference for me (and everyone) in feeling connected and happy.
As a result of my great enjoyment, I wanted to send a thank you gift and was thinking about what to include in a thank you parcel.
I made 2 little mug mats using halloween fabrics that I know he will like. The fabrics are from the Riley Blake line called Costume Maker's Ball.
Here is the back of the mats. So darn cute, quick and fun, and a little quirky... my favourite thing to make. It took away all the angst of making masks and caps.
As I mentioned on my last binding post, my favourite binding needle is the Clover black gold needle, but the eye is sooo tiny.
I was relieved to find my needle threader... it's one of my favourite tools. This photo shows my needle threader and the relative size of these mug mats measuring 5.75" x 7". So fun to hand stitch that binding... see how it's a measuring tape?
And of course at this crazy time in the world, you have to include a roll of toilet paper, because that's just an amazing gift to receive!
