Fourth of July Trivets!

And I'm still cutting up T-shirts and making stuff. I love it! So much fun. The only not fun part is the amount of time it takes to do the actual cutting.  I have to figure out a way around that.

So here are my latest two creations: a pair of red, white and blue trivets for the Fourth of July barbecue.  And you can see I'm really ready with my hamburger salt and pepper shakers (a recent ebay purchase--aren't they adorable?)

Aren't they fun? I seem to be getting the hang of making them so that they'll lay flat. At this size, anyway.

Here's a close up of the stitches. I really don't know the name of the stitches since I'm not a big crocheter and have never learned to follow crochet directions.  But I'm being neat and consistent so I figure that counts as much here as it does in knitting.

That's all for today.  I haven't forgotten about the Death By Chocolate cookies--don't worry! I did just buy all the necessary ingredients and hopefully I'll bake and post about those tomorrow.

Also coming up soon: a knitted T-shirt trivet for those rectangular casserole dishes.

By the way. If you really loooove these trivets, you can buy them! I have opened a new on-line store at etsy for my recycled goods. I figured that they just didn't fit in with my textile art store so it was time. You can see these happy trivets and some of my other recycled crafts at . Keep checking back as I am adding new items almost daily as I get going!
