update: I made a trivet inspired by that link I found. glued it to felt backing with 1/16-1/8" gaps between wood pieces for flexibility. It turned out pretty cool! Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture of my project before it was awarded to the first place chili in our church’s chili cook-off. and unfortunately, I wasn’t the winner haha! Here’s the geometric pattern I made. I will definitely be making more geometric patterns as it was extremely fun, and eye crossing to make.
browsing pinterest and ran across this interesting material. I’m thinking maybe… pot holders or placemats?
