There were some my mother crocheted....worn so thin I have to use two instead of one to keep from getting burned. My mother died in 2004 so that tells you how old they are. A couple of them were a gift from a friend and they are still pretty thick but oh so stained. What in the world stains blue? They're clean because I'm careful to wash them pretty often but, oh my they're ugly. So I just made myself some new ones.
I literally used scraps of fabric left over from other projects, and orphan blocks from somewhere or other. I always save the pieces of bindings that are left ( I'm notorious for making too much binding) so I dug those out of the bin and, on a couple of these, I used the old pot holders for the middle stuff. On the rest I put a layer of InSulBrite between two layers of cotton batting and quilted it all together. I got the idea from one of our bloggers last week....though the ones I saw were a little more elaborate and a lot cuter. I do like the girl from Harry Potter there....she makes me smile. :)
If you need some ideas for quick projects then be sure you check out our bloggers on the Twas The Night hop this week!
