Why should lingerie have a lock on lace? Used as a stencil with metallic paints, the fabric transforms porcelain tiles into softly burnished, intricately patterned trivets and coasters.
Materials

  • Tiles, Daltile bullnose glazed ceramic wall tiles, 4 1/4 inches square, semigloss, in White
  • Spray adhesive
  • Enamel metallic spray paint
  • Felt or cork surface protectors

Dyed and Braided Trivets

Steps:6
Pretty and practical, these surface protectors were made by weaving together strips of dyed ticking fabric. We used a traditional technique that, if you keep going, will result in a braided throw rug.
Materials
  • Pink ticking fabric, at fabric stores and flea markets
  • Liquid fabric dye
  • Salt
  • Large metal or porcelain bowl or basin
  • 24 cups of very hot water
  • Rubber gloves
