I had been looking for this candle mat and found it at long last to complete my simple Valentine's decorating. So now that I've found it I thought I'd share with you how you too can make one just in time for Feb. 14!
Here's what you need:
- some osnaburg fabric - enough to cut 2 large circles,
- some red homespun or any of your choice for the 6 applique hearts,
- needle and thread and scissors! Yep, that's all!
Draw a circle on some card for your template with a diameter of 7".
Place the template on a double layer of the osnaburg and draw around it. This will be your sewing guide line.
So you must make sure to cut out the template leaving 1/4 inch all the way out from your guide line.
Now you can sew all the way round following the guideline.
Once that's done, cut a slit through ONE layer of the osnaburg and turn right side out. Sew up the opening and press flat.Using the 2" heart template, cut out 6 red hearts from your chosen fabric.
Arrange them on the right side up of your circle.Sew them all in place and you are done! Just place a candle on it and enjoy admiring it!
Hope you give it a go!
