Spontaneous Vegetarianism Hot Pad
SUNDAY, JANUARY 15, 2012 | Comments: 8
My kids suffer from something I like to call Spontaneous Vegetarianism. It goes like this—I call my kids to the table for dinner and the moment they see I am serving beef stew they proclaim to be vegetarians. However, the next day at breakfast if there is bacon on the table, they are no longer vegetarians and can eagerly consume much more than their share. This condition is not fatal, but can be contagious among children who come into close contact…
I felt the need to raise awareness at the dinner table through a hot pad.
Using my "doodle stitching" method again, I went freehand and snapped a piece of rough linen into a hoop and started stitching.
I used black embroidery floss and a backstitch.
I cut out 9-inch circles of my embroidery, low-loft bunting and a piece of scrap material.
With the embroidered fabric on top and the bunting in the middle, I pinned all three pieces together.
Using the surge function on my sewing machine, I sewed the edges together.
Getting the issue out on the table.
