Mothers Day is fast approaching but there is still time to make a special, one of a kind, handmade gift for Mum. For time poor sewists, the pretty trivet is the perfect project. Simply gather 7 fat quarters and you can cut and sew this project in under one hour. It is a beginner friendly pattern and would be a good project if teaching someone to sew.
Pretty Trivet can be teamed with a cup, saucer, and plate set and some speciality teas for a thoughtful and practical gift.
I used the Posie fabric collection by Tanya Whelan Fabrics in this easy hexagon trivet. It includes pretty florals, ginghams, stripes and polka dots This sweet fabric range is due out in stores in October/November 2022. Check out the Floral Project Bag I made with this sweet fabric.
This patterns comes in two sizes to make a smaller coaster (ideal for a coffee cup or mug) and the larger trivet size which can be used as a trivet or mugrug.
