A Little Gift

I sent a little gift off this past week...

I purchased two beautiful little ceramic cups from ceramic artist, Joan Ulrich.

I then looked in my stash of scraps and "sampler" fabrics. I found a piece that had two flowers printed on one side.

And an interesting design printed on the other.

I folded and stitched the edges.

Voila! A little mat for the cups.

It was fun and relaxing to stitch a little functional piece.

    1. Thanks, Carol. It was fun to make. A serendipitous find in my scrap pile and a bit of hand sewing! I've been sorting through some of my fabrics from the past year and am finding that many of the scraps and "sampler" fabrics have a lot of potential for small projects. The ideas are percolating!

  2. This is lovely, Julie. I like the ceramic and cloth relationship here.

    1. Thanks, Susan...a little bit of serendipity! It felt great to stitch it up.
