CROCHET HEART MUG RUG

HAPPY VALENTINE DAY
Crochet Heart Bottle Cap Mug Rug    
Hello Again:
How much fun to recycle something that
is often tossed away? I would love to take credit for this creative idea, but I am not to originator of using recycled bottle caps. As a small child and during wwll my Mother and Grandmother were really wonderful at recycling many items that today we take for garnet and toss them out. I can remember my Mother setting and crocheting over bottle caps to create hot place mats to protect the oak wood table from hot food dishes. For quite sometime now I have thought and thought about doing the same and I have developing many other wonderful crocheted bottle cap project an in the works writing an e-book on use bottle caps and other items. As my logo saying goes “Making old thing new, bright and beautiful" Lenzie

Have a magical day. LenZie

yes..My sil's mom did this and it was a grapes patterned hot pad like trivet for the table. Can't imagine sitting a hot pan over these or even a dish of food...these are lovely! Are you selling these or taking orders?
