Wrapped vintage sheet hot mat

Ok this was not what I wanted or was trying to make. I was trying to make a basket. However that did not happen seeing how I bought the wrong type of cording and once I sewed on it the cording flattened out. YIKES. However wrapping and sewing all the cord took a bit of time so I was like what am I gonna do with this? Oh a hot mat. This took a bunch of time to make just the wrapping and sewing it on. Putting it together took no time at all and it was fun. I hope the the next time it does not take me as long. If it does I dont think I could put a price tag on my basket, the time out weighs the cost to make the darn thing. LOL But it looks so cool. Even if I just mad a hot mat and lets face it who gets crazy excited about those? Not to many. haha. But I do love looking at this visually. Its so pretty. I used cotton piping/cording. I was suppose to use a clothesline. We shall try again.


I really like the way it "accidentally" turned out.

Maybe you could write a tutorial on it and then I can make some with fabric, hint hint!
