    More mats using selvages and fabric strips.
    I used coffee filters to paper piece these (tip found on the QB some time back). I ironed the filter flat and once it was covered with the piecing and a good pressing, I cut with scissor around the filter for a nearly perfect circle.

    That is really cute! If you added a little gold squarish shape to the top with a loop on top of that, it would look like a Christmas ball!

    I will try that. I bought the wrong size filters for our coffee pot so that's a way to get rid of them Thanks.

    I forgot that we had bought wrong size filters and bought another package for this purpose. I now have 400 filters to use for something besides making coffee.
    Coffee filters tear off the back really easy.
