New Life for Old Tapestry, Crock Pads

Crock Pads

   We've been collecting crocks for a long time, and have always had problems with them getting bumped or scooted, and scratching the hardwood floors.
   I've been trying to think of a way to remedy this.  I was going to cut up throw rugs, and make pads, but, most of them were too thick.
   Today I thought about an old tapestry I purchased a few months back.  It was woven tightly and worked very well.
   I simply cut circles, various sizes for different crocks, and ironed them out.
   What a relief, no more scratches on the floor, when someone bumps into a crock.  I planned to sew edging around the outer edge, but, it was woven so tightly, I didn't have to.  No rocket science with this project, but, these little crock pads will serve a good purpose.

Have a Blessed Day,


  1. I love that idea. The pads look so good, it is a shame to hide them...Very creative. Missed you! Blessings!

  2. I love when a project actually turns out easier than I planned....It seldom happens though!


  3. They turned out so nice! Great idea!

  4. I have never heard of crock pads but glad you found a use for them.
