    Here are some kaleidoscopes I made several years ago. They were made into hotpads and trivets

    These pictures were taken with a 35mm and then I scanned them so if they aren't real clear I apologize!

    Someone asked me about how to fill the center if you cut the sections short. Look at the centers of these and you will see that I fussy cut some pieces from the fabrics to match the theme of each K
    I make a yoyo and applique it into the center. If you use a blind stitch it will blend with no seams or thread showing.

    Sometimes I just sew them in with my machine. Just make sure you overlap the yoyo over all the ends of your K center.

    That is funny! I bought some more of the green leaves to make some more because the first ones are long gone years ago and I love this fabic in K's. I have moved on to other fabrics and have three I am dying to see how they turn out.
