Glass Slippers

With all the talented stitchers in the world it is difficult to find an item you haven't seen before. A dear friend of mine, Maureen Graham, created one of these items. She calls them “Glass Slippers.” These lovely little fabric “coasters” slide onto any stemware providing protection as well as beauty for your table.

Maureen has given her consent for me to share this pattern with our CQMagOnline readers. Thanks Maureen for such a lovely and unique creation.

Start with:
One 4 ½” square of dupioni for the base
Two 4 ½” x 2 ½” silk organza rectangles

Hem one long side of each rectangle with a ¼” seam.

Place the two rectangles together with hemmed edges meeting (right side up).

Lay the 4 ½” square base on top with right side facing right side of rectangles.

Stitch around all four sides with ¼” seam allowance. Trim corners and turn right sides out.

Although Maureen has chosen silk organza and dupioni, any fabric of your choice can be substituted. It would even be beautiful crazy quilted.
