This week I have made two chrysanthemum hot pads. I want to make a Patriotic series of them, which would mean a set of 9 hot pads. I have a solid blue cotton and a variegated patriotic cotton as well as the solid white and red ones that I used for these two. With the 4 cottons combined that would mean 9 different hot pads (the variegated one would look strange as the center color to me, so I'm only going to use it as the outer color).
Earlier this week I bought some 3" origami paper and made these 4 tea bag rosettes using the same paper and the same folds, but with 4 different looks. I want to place something like a button in the center of them and turn them into either ornaments or gift toppers.
Here is a picture that I took this morning from my garden.
