They’re Simple and Fun to Make!
These cute watermelon trivets are perfect for summer. They’ll be a fun addition to your table, whether you’re dining indoors or out. They’ll also protect your counters from hot dishes.
Plus, they’re super easy to make. Wrap strips of fabric around cotton clothesline rope, coil it and sew the coil together with a zigzag stitch.
The black seeds are fused with Ultra Hold Heat n Bond, which is a strong adhesive that does not require the edges to be stitched down.
Start with strips of pink/red fabric and light and medium green cut into 1″ strips. You can use yardage or scraps. The designer adhered the fabric ends with a Sewline Fabric Glue Pen but any washable glue stick will work.
The completed trivets are approximately 10 1/2″ across.
Shabby Fabrics provides a video and a free pattern at the link below. The listed fabric requirements will make three trivets.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
